Former NBA star Lamar Odom has experienced the perils of live TV after being caught in a rather personal and awkward moment.
Not only was Odom booted from the American version of Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, but he was also caught on camera ‘adjusting’ himself.
Host of the show Erin Andrews stood in front of Odom, obviously oblivious to the scene going on behind her as she spoke with another one of the dancers.
Odom told Hollywood Life the footage made him “feel like a little creep” while blaming the incident due to this “blessed” status.
“I’m blessed. I guess that means I’m blessed,” he said.
“I had to adjust myself; it’s the outfit,” Odom added. “But it’s the truth…you understand that problem. It’s nothing to be ashamed about. I had fun.”
Social media was rife with comments following the gaffe, with many men understanding Odom’s pain.
“If you [sic] not a man you wouldn’t understand,” one person commented on Instagram.
“Lord he can’t catch a break,” another wrote.
One commented: “It’s easy to run somebody down when there down but this could have easily been any of us. It’s funny until it’s your turn!”
Another wrote: “What a time to live in….nothing goes unnoticed!”
