Nicki Minaj

ABC Apologizes

For Airing Nip Slip

8/5/2011 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicki Minaj Nip Slip
ABC says the network DID have a 5-second delay in place on "Good Morning America" this morning ... but insists Nicki Minaj's nip slip just happened to fall through the cracks.

A spokesperson for the network tells TMZ, "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."

The rep adds, "We are sorry that this occurred."

Do you go through the video frame-by-frame to find the ugliest still of her? You should do SPOILER ALERT if you're going to show scenes from Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

What makes anyone think this feakazoid is suitable 'entertainment' for a morning show? You KNOW there were kids watching too!

Can't ANY singers today JUST SING? Must there be these ridiculous over-the-top antics, outfits & wigs? If you're REALLY ANY GOOD YOU SHOULDN'T NEED ALL THAT CRAP!

Maybe people should wear clothes that fit and they wouldn't have this problem.

I still want to know. What is a Nick Minaj? Why was it on GMA? And why should we care?

Is that a wig? Are those silicone bags made by Monsanto or Du Pont?

How about she wear something that doesn't make a nip slip possible? Why is it the network's responsibility to apologize for her dressing like a slut?

Would anybody have noticed if the media people didn't keep talking about it. I didn't.

It's just a frigging t*t shot people. Cool the f&ck out. I'd take that any day over seeing two guys on stage (or anywhere) swapping spit.

How the hell do I 'Like' or 'Dislike'? They don't seem to be clickable for me. WTF?

I know technically this was a violation of some FCCA rules, but it's just a nipple. CALM DOWN! I think it's silly that people find womens nipples offensive. I know this point has been beaten to death, but with all the content on TV filled with violence and indecent material, if I had kids a nipple wouldn't be something I'd worry about them catching a few seconds glimpse of. It's a part of our anatomy. Sexually repressed people of America, please sit this fight out.

a long time Leno fan!    

They're always apologizing and an apology is like crying over spilled milk, a fruitless endeavor from these people. Let's face it, if anyone really felt like following the FCC rules over there, this would never take place!

I'd bet if the exec in charge of this show had his day SALARY taken from him "each time" an incident like this happened, it would likely "never" happen again...

DISGUSTING.
