[ # ] BBC’s Maryam Moshiri caught giving the finger live on the air!
December 7th, 2023 under TV News

BBC’s Maryam Moshiri was getting ready to go live yesterday for her lunchtime news bulletin, and she was caught on camera giving the middle finger before reading the news.

Well, needless to say, the viewers were not happy, and the clip went viral.

So today, she apologized and explained what happened, “Hey everyone, yesterday just before the top of the hour I was joking around a bit with the team in the gallery.

“I was pretending to count down as the director was counting me down from 10-0.. including the fingers to show the number. So from 10 fingers held up to one.

“When we got to 1 I turned finger around as a joke and did not realise that this would be caught on camera.

“It was a private joke with the team and I’m so sorry it went out on air! It was not my intention for this to happen and I’m sorry if I offended or upset anyone. I wasn’t ‘flipping the bird’ at viewers or even a person really.

“It was a silly joke that was meant for a small number of my mates. ‍♀️”

As someone who has worked in TV news, I believe her story. But then again, I have been caught doing so many things on camera I should not have been doing because I didn’t know it was on me!
