This BBC sex scene became viral yesterday! There is visible graphic nudity on the screen behind the news anchor, who was delivering the latest in sports.
This honest mistake is as amusing as it is inappropriate.
On Thursday, 49-year-old news anchor Sophie Raworth was reporting the latest on the cricket team in England, as part of the “News at Ten” edition. The information she gives – that England’s team registered another victory – is fading against details on the left side, of her shoulder.
On one of the screens that can be seen behind the glass background of the news set, viewers – about 3.8 million at the time (it was live) – could see scenes of what looksl ike the beginning of a pornographic movie. Or, at least a light version.
In the erotic scene, captioned for about 10 seconds, a blonde woman is seen taking her bra off, while a man was watching her.
The direct viewer, the one barely spotted watching the screen from a chair, has his deadest on and appears to be having a relaxed posture, like he’s not doing anything inappropriate.
Some argue that, even though it looks like a porn movie, it might as well have been just a regular movie with a nudity scene. However, according to Toofab, BBC has started investigating the matter and is “establishing the facts”.
A television source told The Sun about the BBC sex scene that it was very unprofessional and that the mishap “has gone down like a lead balloon at the BBC.” The source added” it beggars belief a sex scene should be played live on air. The employee is on borrowed time when bosses catch up with him.”
