We all know that Rita Ora 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.
Viewers were so OUTRAGED by the pop star’s low-cut jacket that they complained to the BBC in their hundreds, prompting the show to officially apologise.
Do we not have more important things to do, people?!
While the 24-year-old’s white jacket was a little *ahem* eye-popping, we’re not quite sure how it could actually be considered offensive… but apparently it got One Show fans seriously riled up.
Each to their own, yeah?!
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.”
If this was what she wore on early evening TV we wonder what she’s going to pull out the bag for The Voice… prepare yourself for more complaints, people!
