The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has come under serious attack by the viewers of the channel. The channel was recently slammed by its viewers as well social media users for mistaking Lebron James fo Kobe Bryant.
It was gathered that the British channel showed footage of LeBron James while reporting the Helicopter crash that killed NBA legend- Kobe Bryant, Kobe’s 13 years old daughter- Gianna and seven others on Sunday. They have however come out to apologize for such huge mistake.
Imagine that kind of mistake; it goes to show that they do not have suffcient knowledge on what they are reporting but are only reporting the matter because others are doing so.
The below were the words of David Lammy concerning such error
Opposition Labour Party politician David Lammy led criticism of the British network, writing on Twitter: “Kobe Bryant and LeBron James don’t even look similar. If the BBC hired more black producers and editors, appalling mistakes like this simply would not happen. He quit basketball in 2016 as the third-leading scorer in NBA history.”
