BBC Reporter Slapped After Accidental On-Camera Grope

Woman stepped into live newscast in England.

A BBC reporter’s attempt to remove an unwanted woman from of his news segment turned pretty uncomfortable, pretty quickly.

Ben Brown was interviewing fellow BBCer Norman Smith about the Labour party when a woman stepped into the frame. HuffPost UK reports that Brown, who was doing the interview in Bradford, England, tried to shoo the woman out of the way.

However, he accidentally pushed her away by the breast.

In response, the woman slapped Brown’s shoulder and then walked out of the frame. Afterwards, Brown took to Twitter to apologize and clarify that the grope was “completely unintentional.”
