Crashes! Racism! Missing Trousers! It’s Not One But Three TV Blunders Today!

Got the Mondayitis blues? Well, shake them off here with not one but THREE on-air TV blunders today, dear readers.

The ever-prying TV camera lens provides a rich vein of mirth here at B&T and today we’re serving up a trifecta of nonsense (although, admittedly, one relates to racism that’s really just plain awful). Reel in the trio below…

BBC newsreader caught sans trousers

The UK is currently in the midst of a summer heatwave with temperatures nudging a decidedly sweaty 27 degrees for our English friends.

And things were apparently pretty hot in the BBC’s London studios over the weekend when the camera panned across the news desk to find its venerable news anchor Shaun Ley delivering the news sans any trousers.

The news veteran was suitably tailored in shirt, tie and jacket from the top, but appears to be wearing his swimming trunks below:

Woman stacks bike while photobombing TV reporter

Meanwhile over in California, a cyclist has become a viral hit after stacking her bike while photobombing a live TV report.

An unnamed reporter was doing a piece at Santa Monica when the woman decided to capture the moment for prosperity on her phone.

Unfortunately as the cyclist tries to capture her ‘five minutes of fame’ she forgot the basics of bike riding – holding onto the handlebars.

Other than pride, it’s unclear if the woman was otherwise unhurt in the incident. Check out the sixer below.

Volleyballer’s vile racist gesture caught on film

A Serbian volleyball player has apologised after she was caught on camera making a racist gesture toward her Thai opponents.

Serbian player Sanja Djurdjevic pulled her eyelids apart to make a slant-eye gesture during the televised FIVB Volleyball Women’s Nationals League (FIVB) match against the Thai team in Italy over the weekend after the Thai player failed to win a point.

Djurdjevic later apologised for the incident via her Instagram account:  “I am aware of my mistake and I immediately after the match apologized to the whole Thailand team. I only wanted to address my teammates with the message: ‘now, we will start playing defense like them’, I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone.

“Of course, it was unfortunate and not so smart gesture from my side,” she said, adding that she was sorry to people around the world “who are offended by this”.

“Big thanks to the Thailand team for understanding,” she concluded.
