Watch: TV Anchor Caught Flipping Middle Finger Right Into the Camera Live on Air



A British television anchor was seemingly unprepared to report the news as she was caught flipping the middle finger right at the live camera in a now-viral clip on Wednesday.

BBC host Maryam Moshiri, one of the network’s “chief presenters,” showed off her third digit for the world to see as she was about to present the noontime news on Wednesday.

As the traditional BBC countdown descended to zero, the screen transitioned to Moshiri with her head tilted, eyes wide open, bearing a large smirk and displaying the unmistaken gesture sticking straight up.

It was only a matter of milliseconds before Moshiri realized what had happened as she quickly composed herself and began her segment, “Live from London, this is BBC News.”

Moshiri then began reading the top story of the weekly show “Prime Minister’s Questions” about “former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson apologizes for the pain and loss suffered in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic.”

On Thursday, Moshiri spoke out regarding the incident and said she was only joking around with the team behind the camera and it was meant to be a private joke, and didn’t mean to cause any harm.

“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,” she said in a post to X. When we got to 1 I turned finger around as a joke and did not realise that this would be caught on camera.

Moshiri apologized for the incident saying “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.”

The unintended caught-on-camera moment did not go unnoticed, as hundreds of social media users took their crack at Moshiri’s misfortune.

“Looks like someone had to make it to work without their morning coffee,” one person commented on X.

“I have the same expression hearing anyone from BBC,” another said.

“I’ll cut her some slack and assume she was flipping off the cameraman,” a third comment read.
