It was a mistake, at breast.
BBC News accidentally aired a clip of “True Blood” that showed actress Anna Paquin’s bare breasts during its News at 10 segment earlier this week, video shows.
The nip slip-up happened because an episode was playing on an employee’s computer in the background of the live broadcast.
While BBC declared it would investigate the blatant not safe for work error, Paquin found the humor in it, despite her topless chest being blasted across English TV screens — and ultimately, the internet.
“Now that I know what u guys were talking about this some of the funniest s–t I’ve seen in a while!!! Thanks for the giggle!” she tweeted.
“Photoboobed,” the 35-year-old continued.
She was even proud to declare that the breasts on the screen belonged to her, retweeting a news story with the headline “BBC accidentally shows woman’s breasts during News at Ten” and responding: “MY BREASTS!! SO FUNNY ON SO MANY LEVELS.”
The network has yet to determine how the scene kept playing behind news presenter Sophie Raworth.
A statement from the network read: “We are establishing the facts and circumstances.”
Paquin even had a laugh at the network’s response.
“What’s there to look into? My t–s photobombed the news because someone was watching #trueblood in view of camera??” she wrote.
