NBC airs bare breast unintentionally during Olympic water polo match
NBC accidently broadcast bare breasts of one water polo player via the network’s underwater camera, after her suit was pulled to the side.
Water polo involves two teams of athletes lunging at each other in a swimming pool for control of the ball, and that can sometimes lead to swimsuits getting dislodged, as in Wednesday’s women’s game between the U.S. and Spain.
Recently, the network had taken criticism during the Olympic Games for failing to live broadcast key events, like the opening ceremony, the New York Daily News reported.
However, according to Deadspin, Wednesday’s breast-baring incident might prompt the network to “decide to end the practice entirely and go all-tape delay”.
