Channel NINE Apologises For THAT Celebrity Apprentice Tweet
Channel NINE apologised yesterday for the TWEET that made to air in last Thursday night’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice Australia. See previous blog post here.
During Thursday night’s show “The receptionist on #celebapprentice is still working on that spreadsheet?? She must have got her job spreading between the sheets I suspect,” it read.
The Daily Telegraph state:
A Nine spokesman yesterday said broadcasting the tweet was an error and had “slipped” past their social media monitoring.
“Unfortunately, the racy tweet slipped through our censorship net post 9.30pm,” he said.
“The Nine social media team apologised to Caitlin who was not concerned at all.”
I am not sure the issue was that Caitlin would be insulted she was just playing a role, but it does raise the issue of gray area about what could be deemed “humorous” online can be offensive when place on TV.
