It was a shocking thing on Thursday night as news network CNN accidentally aired hardcore p0’rn for 30 minutes. Last night, CNN accidentally aired half an hour of hardcore p0r’n0graphy to viewers after a grave error by RCN, a local cable TV provider based in New Jersey that provides CNN’s broadcasting all down the east coast, The Independent UK reports.
Viewers had tuned in to watch the brand new episode of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown, the show’s title took on a brand new meaning when the scheduled programming was replaced with explicit material starring adult transsexual film star, Riley Quinn.
The report revealed that the glitch was only experienced by people in Boston as one voiced her concerns on Twitter. “I can’t wait until [RCN] wakes up [tomorrow] & realizes that hardcore p0 rn was broadcast on [CNN] instead of [Parts Unknown] tonight,” user @Solikearose wrote. Just an hour later, the CNN channel was taken off-air.
The shocking mistake happened on Thursday night. However, it is not unclear if the incident was a mistake or the network was hacked. How the mistake was allowed to air for 30 minutes has left many people in shock as to the damage it might have caused to some families.
The network recently came under fire after running a headline that included “If Jews Are People” in a headline. It is not clear what really happened as CNN is yet to issue a statement on the incident.
