Liverpool and Wolverhampton were locking horns in a match of the FA Cup on Thursday, the 17th of January. Apart from the action of the match, there was something else during the live coverage of BBC that immediately went viral on social media and drew embarrassment for the official broadcasters of the FA Cup.
The BBC had to issue an apology as the pornographic noises happened to interrupt the coverage of the match between Liverpool and Wolves. The noises could be heard in a high volume when official host Gary Lineker was in a conversation with fellow commentator Alan Shearer.
“I don’t know who’s making that noise,” said Lineker laughingly.
“Somebody’s sending something on someone’s phone, I think. I don’t know whether you heard it at home,” he added later.
Later on, former England striker Lineker took to his Twitter to handle to let the fans know about the incident.
“Somebody’s sending something on someone’s phone, I think. I don’t know whether you heard it at home,” tweeted Lineker.
Well, we found this taped to the back of the set. As sabotage goes it was quite amusing. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/ikUhBJ38Je
