She upset a lot of people with her rather *ahem* prominent cleavage on The One Show earlier this week, but Rita Ora has one firm supporter in the form of pal Professor Green.
Clearly a little bemused by all the fuss (as were we), the rapper jumped onto Twitter to defend The Voice star, trying to get
The 24-year-old faced major backlash after wearing a plunging white jacket on the early evening show, and it seems that Pro was among those who thought the world had gone blimmin’ mad.
Along with a re-post of the ‘OUTRAGEOUS’ photo, he tweeted: “#notoffended #ritasboobsarenotoffensive @ritaora.”
Yeah, we’re totally on board with this.
While The One Show was forced to officially apologise for the sartorial slip-up, Rita has stayed tight-lipped about the whole thing but was wearing rather a lot of clothes as she left her house on Thursday.
Going too far in the other direction, Rita?!
We all know that the RIP singer isn’t the most demure of dressers, but it seems that One Show viewers were NOT prepared for her level of boob-flashing on Tuesday evening.
After a pretty impressive 400 people made official complaints to the Beeb, producers posted on the show’s Facebook page:
“We’re sorry to those of you who were offended by Rita Ora’s choice of outfit on yesterday’s show. If we had been consulted on it we would have requested she wore something more suitable for 7pm.”
Despite the apology, complaints still flooded in on the BBC’s Points of View message board, with some viewers admitting that their kids could have been upset by ALL THE BOOBS.
One person wrote: “I’m no Mary Whitehouse, but is Rita Ora’s outfit really suitable for this time of the evening? Thankfully my 7 year old boy is elsewhere.. Come on BBC, make the woman put a vest on…”
Another added: “I have signed in for the first time to make a complaint to the BBC as I was watching by chance with my daughters, aged 7 and 11. Where on earth have the BBC’s standards and sense of moral responsibility gone?”
But some viewers were completely bemused by all the fuss, claiming that we shouldn’t be outraged by a little bit of cleavage. For God’s sake.
One supporter wrote: “These comments are wind up surely. Children see a lot worse than that on the beach and in pop videos. Not as if it was porn or even full-frontal nude.
“And in any case, it’s just the human body – nothing to be up tight about.”
Slightly mixed bag then.
A spokesman for the BBC waded in, saying: “The One Show allows guests to choose their own attire and pop stars often opt for something glamorous or striking.
“We didn’t feel that Rita’s outfit would be outside of most viewers’ expectations of that of a major pop star, but we appreciate that tastes vary.”
Don’t worry, Rita, we’re all behind you!
