BBC host forced to apologize after live broadcast misstep showed Trump rally not rugby
On Saturday afternoon, the BBC host was forced to apologize after a live broadcast blunder.
Introducing the next segment on BBC One at 5:20pm, broadcaster Jane Hill began: rugby union Six Nationsand Ireland just kicked off against England.
“Ireland hope to win the title, but France’s first win over Wales has kept their hopes of remaining champions alive.
“Ben Croucher was watching.”
The clip then cut to a picture of a supposedly “Make America Great Again” rally, with hundreds of people gathered in a crowded room surrounded by American flags.
Seconds later, the clip returned to Hill, who said:
“That’s definitely not the case. We don’t want to take you to a very big sports weekend like this.
“Sorry, but I hope we’ll cover the Six Nations in more detail later.”
Viewers were quite confused as to what happened and wrote:
Another wrote: “BBC News hacked again? Make America great again.”
Another commented that the host “looked completely shocked,” while another laughed. Fiona Bruce in question time and Gary Lineker temporarily asked to resign from Match of the Day.
