Hardcore gay pornography was accidentally played during a local morning news broadcast on a Canadian television channel.
On Friday morning, around three minutes of indecent sex scenes were played to viewers of CHCH-TV in Hamilton, Ontario, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.
The broadcast was also played in some homes in the Canadian capital Ottawa.
The station’s vice president of news Mike Katrycz issued an apology, explaining that the pornography originated at a local cable company.
The company had accidentally inserted the wrong programming during a repair of cut cable lines. Because the content originated off-site, it took station controllers a few minutes to take it off the air.
Katrycz stated: “In the splicing together, unfortunately, some inappropriate content went to air.
“Of course, we know there are kids out there, there are people who don’t want this in their homes and would never invite this in our homes.”
