The Giant Media house made a shocking stunt today when they let out a live ticker that left Man United fans unhappy
During a live broadcast of a tennis match, BBC surprisedly displayed a live ticker reading ‘Manchester United are rubbish’.
Until lately, it was a shock to many who wondered the reason why such an influential Media House would make such broadcast.
Suggested by many fans who joked around social media stating BBC owners had placed bet with Man United to finish in a better position while others said they were frustrated and had to let it out.
But lately, BBC has brought to the attention of the public the reason why the incident occured and also issued an apology to Man United.
BBC News have apologised for a message seen on their ticker during this morning’s news broadcast that read “Manchester United are rubbish.”
They have stated someone was training to learn how to use the ticker and were just “writing random things.”
Speaking on the incident, presenter Annita McVeigh said;
“A little earlier, some of you may have noticed something pretty unusual on the ticker that runs along the bottom of the screen with news making a comment about Manchester United, and I hope that Manchester United fans weren’t offended by it.
“Let me just explain what was happening: behind the scenes someone was training to learn how to use the ticker and to put text on the ticker, so they were just writing random things not in earnest and that comment appeared.
“So apologies if you saw that and you were offended and you’re a fan of Manchester United.
“But certainly that was a mistake and it wasn’t meant to appear on the screen. So that was what happened, we just thought we’d better explain that to you.”
