Excommunicated Latae Sententiae?

According to Ambrose Moran in the following video, I have excommunicated myself because I have “insulted, slandered, and attacked a bishop”.  I suppose he means that I have incurred the penalty of excommunication latae sententiae (i.e., ipso facto or automatically).  Yet, Ambrose Moran does not cite one canon of the 1917 Code of Canon Law (or even the 1983 Code for that matter) to support his claim.  Instead, he uses general terms such as “most ancient canons of the Church” or “the canons of the Holy Apostles”.  If one is to make such a claim, then please back it up with specific canons of the Catholic Church’s Code of Canon Law.  Otherwise, such a claim cannot be taken seriously.
