BBC Reporter Slapped After Grabbing Boob

Reporting live from the field sure can be difficult. There is always someone who sees a camera and wants to get in on the action.

While on location, BBC Reporter Ben Brown got slapped by a passerby after he pushed her away by the boob. Oof! Bad move buddy! Not a classy situation by any stretch.


Sometimes reporters can handle these showboats, like the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore stopping an aggressive college student with a well-timed knee to the crotch.


BBC’s Ben Brown wasn’t paying close enough attention when he tried to move the curious student out of the way.

Brown responded to the incident on Twitter, writing:

Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford – just tried to minimise disruption but v tricky love on air – completely unintentional.

Though Brown did receive some cheeky responses to the incident via Twitter, I wouldn’t worry about it too much if I were him. When I first learned of this incident I imagined a slap to the face, but it wasn’t all that serious.

What do you think? Complete accident or creepy power move? I say accident. Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
