NZ sports fans cop eyeful of hardcore

Rooting housewives invade Grass Roots Rugby

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Shaken NZ sports fans have recounted how a relaxing Sunday afternoon in front of Prime TV's Grass Roots Rugby turned to horror and disbelief as they were treated to three minutes and 50 seconds of rooting Desperate Black Wives 2.

According to 3 News, the "programming blunder" spewed no-holds-barred filth from one of Sky's adult channels, provoking outrage and a flood of calls to the news station.

One dad explained his eight-year-old son's innocence had "been ruined", while a visibly shocked and disturbed teenager described herself as "shocked" and "disturbed" at the pornfest.

Another viewer rather unfortunately insisted "it was not something he wanted to see as he was watching Grass Roots Rugby".

Prime TV attributed the scandal to a "distribution fault" and said it had "taken steps to ensure it did not happen again". Prime apologised for any offence caused. ®
