The typically stoic BBC is in a spot of hot water after its UK breakfast program inadvertently aired a monster black dildo to unsuspecting viewers.
BBC Breakfast was hosting UK music artist Stormzy to talk about his latest single. To introduce their guest, producers aired footage of the rapper performing at this year’s famed music festival, Glastonbury.
However, on closer inspection a fan in the crowd can be seen dressed in some sort of police/military uniform waving the offending appendage about. Check out all the action below:
Both Stormzy and the show’s presenters, Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty, didn’t appear to notice the error and continued with the interview without a hitch.
Keen-eyed BBC Breakfast viewers soon took to social media to register their pleasure at the enormous black latex device.
One viewer wrote: “@bbcbreakfast you just showed a very large ‘appendage’ being waved around by a guy on live tv during the Stormzy segment…”.
Another remarked: “If it’s not C-Bombs on CBeebies it’s THIS at 9am!”
While another added: “Nearly choked on my breakfast watching #stormzy on @BBCBreakfast #d**dogate. Wouldn’t want to have to explain that to kids watching!!”
A BBC Breakfast spokesperson told the UK’s The Sun: “A handful of people spotted a fleeting shot of someone in the crowd at Glastonbury holding up something which seems to have caused some amusement on social media – we’re not aware that viewers took offence.”
