R&B Singer Nicki Minaj had a wardrobe malfunction on live television Friday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America that slipped through the censors even with a five-second delay. The incident in question occurred while Minaj was singing her verse from David Guetta’s Where Them Girls At to fans at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield and suddenly her breast was accidentally revealed. She and ABC immediately received criticism and complaints from viewers, forcing ABC to apologize.
“Although we had a five-second delay in place for the Nicki Minaj concert on GMA, the live East Coast feed of the concert regrettably included certain fleeting images of the performer that were taken out of later feeds of the broadcast in other time zones. We are sorry that this occurred,” the ABC statement said.
Although it was later edited out for the west coast, Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council, was outraged by the occurrence. “For the umpteenth time in recent memory a morning news show has included inappropriate content for children and families,” Winter told TMZ. Regarding ABC’s apology, he wasn’t having any of it. “Instead of asking for forgiveness, they need to stop apologizing and implement the five second delay that so many Americans have been calling for.”
Given the five-second delay, a spokesperson for ABC called revealing the mishap was a “human error” on their part. During the performance, Minaj was wearing a low-cut green crop top and pink jacket. Minaj is currently on the “Femme Fatale” tour with Britney Spears in North America and decided to make a stop in New York City to be part of the ongoing GMA 2011 concert series.
