CNN has been airing all kinds of carnage, as it covers the nationwide protests and riots that are taking place across the country. But MTO News has learned that multiple social media reports are claiming that CNN also aired a different type of graphic footage recently.
Last week, according to multiple social media postings, CNN allegedly inadvertently aired video showing two Black men engaged in gay relations. In the image posted on social media, one man appeared to have his face in the other man's ... well, you have to see it for yourself.
Here is the image, warning it is EXTREMELY graphic:
If this is true, this wouldn't be the first time that CNN accidentally aired very explicit content over their airwaves. In 2016, the Daily Mail reported that CNN accidentally aired a pornographic scene during an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown on CNN. Images of CNNs alleged slip up was widely circulated on social media, accompanied by the hashtag #BourdainPorn:
A person purported to be a CNN viewer posted several photos of her screen on Twitter, claiming that she was expecting to tune in for Bourdain’s travelogue but was met with explicit images of porn star Riley Quinn instead.
The porn movie, according to the user, went on for at least 30 minutes. She first saw it on CNN around 10:30 pm, watched something else, and kept checking periodically until the channel blacked out completely at 11 pm.
CNN has since denied that they ever aired the video.
