CNN accidentally aired a half hour of porn instead of Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ – spicing up Thanksgiving night in the Boston area, a viewer has claimed. The viewer posted several photos of her screen on Twitter, showing how she was expecting to tune in for Bourdain’s travelogue but was met with explicit images of a porn star 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.
‘The RCN cable operator in Boston aired inappropriate content for 30 minutes on CNN last night. CNN has asked for an explanation,’ a CNN spokesperson told the DailyMail.com.
The user complained to cable provider RCN, who operates on the east coast, and said she was told everything was ‘working perfectly’ and that the company didn’t know how many households were affected.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the viewer was the only one affected or if several households ended up watching a pornographic movie instead of ‘Parts Unknown’.
