The BBC is being widely mocked online for showing footage of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James while airing a segment about the death of Kobe Bryant.
Evening news program BBC News at Ten committed the embarrassing gaffe Sunday night but later apologized and chalked it up to human error, according to The Daily Mail.
The clip being distributed online begins by showing Bryant and his daughter Gianna who both died Sunday morning in a California helicopter crash in Calabasas that killed at least nine.
The footage then cuts to current Lakers great, Lebron James, high-fiving a fellow teammate before draining a layup.

oh my, there is a reporter out there that said Hold My beer.
She accidentally used the N word when talking about Kobe and the Lakers
.@bbc do better.
1. You are showing LeBron instead of Kobe.
2. Career got cut short? He played for 20 years and not many basketball players play for 20 years. Only five people have played more seasons than Kobe Bryant in the history of the NBA.
3. You lot are so embarrassing https://t.co/o1bzooZZMg— Tobi Oredein (@IamTobiOredein) January 26, 2020
here is the clip...
The reporter clearly wasn’t trying to say the N word..but she is getting crucified
Hey! At least it wasn’t footage of Lew Alcindor.
“here is the clip...
The reporter clearly wasnt trying to say the N word..but she is getting crucified”
This PC crap is getting out of control. One slip on any word that you may ever say in public and you’re finished.
At least they got the race right.
Kobe was better than punk Labron. He is in the top 3. Him, Jordan and Bill Russell.
What, I’m the first to post, “All black folk look alike” to the BBC? /S!
Tis a JOKE!
They also got the sport right ... so they’ve got that going for them. :)
I remember some outrage over the word Snickers. Can’t remember who it was...probably a Republican.
I’d put Magic ahead of Kobe, but you got the other two right.
Gallows humor but that was funny.
Magic and Kareem.
The knock on Kobe as a player was that he never met a shot he didn’t like, and that he didn’t make the guys around him better, as was the case with Jordan. Still a tremendous talent, and a horrible loss. Prayers for the family.
