The Parents Television Council is blasting "Good Morning America" for airing Nicki Minaj's nip slip on live TV this morning ... saying the whole thing COULD have been prevented with a 5-second delay.
TMZ spoke with Tim Winter, president of the PTC, who tells us, "For the umpteenth time in recent memory a morning news show has included inappropriate content for children and families."
He adds, "Instead of asking for forgiveness, they need to stop apologizing and implement the five second delay that so many Americans have been calling for.”
As we previously reported, Minaj's left breast popped out of her top during a performance on "GMA" this morning -- and her exposed nipple was broadcasted to the entire East Coast audience.
Botox Mom -- 'GMA' Never Checked Its Facts
5/19/2011 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sheena Upton aka Kerry Campbell claims "Good Morning America" was so anxious to get the first interview with the Botox Mom ... show producers never even bothered to double check her story.
Upton tells TMZ, GMA -- who she claims offered her $10,000 for her story -- "didn't ask me any questions to try to figure out anything" before airing the show last week -- adding, they just put her straight on TV.
A spokesperson for ABC has already insisted the show made several attempts to verify Upton's story -- telling us, "Good Morning America has repeatedly questioned Upton, members of her family, and other sources who again and again stood by the Botox story."
As we previously reported, Upton claims the entire story that she injected her 8-year-old daughter with Botox was a complete sham ... concocted by a U.K. tabloid called The Sun -- which then paid her $200 for acting the part.

The woman who admitted on national television that she injected Botox into her 8-year-old daughter ... has now lost custody of the girl.
Child Protective Services in San Francisco launched an investigation last week after Kerry Campbell went on "Good Morning America" and told the world she gave her daughter Britney the anti-wrinkle injections herself ... to help her compete in beauty pageants.
According to ABC News, Britney has been removed from the home by CPS and taken into their custody while an investigation is conducted.
Britney is reportedly "doing well."

The woman who went on "Good Morning America" yesterday and ADMITTED to giving regular Botox injections to her 8-year-old daughter is now being investigated by Child Protective Services.
CPS in San Francisco says their phones rang off the hook yesterday after Kerry Campbell appeared on "GMA" -- and admitted she regularly administered the anti-wrinkle injections ... to give her daughter an edge in the world of child beauty pageants.
A rep for CPS claims, “It’s pretty unusual for a mom to be injecting an 8-year-old with Botox and certainly is grounds for investigation.”
The rep adds, "We need to sit down and talk with the mom, talk with the child, and see what's going on."
Kerry Campbell faces 4.3 billion years in prison ... or at least she should.

Chris Brown finally apologized for his destructive behavior at "Good Morning America" -- but he made sure to take a few shots at the show at the same time.
Though Robin Roberts says Brown was aware she was going to ask about Rihanna, Chris told a different story on last night's "106 & Park" on BET -- where he said the talking points approved by his people were all about "positivity" and his new album.
Brown says he was "thrown off" by Robin's line of questioning -- and said she only brought up the Rihanna incident in an effort to "exploit me."
The singer says he then exploded backstage "to release the anger that I had inside me," adding that "I got very emotional and I apologize for that."
For their part, ABC News this morning said "Chris Brown was invited on 'Good Morning America' to perform and be interviewed. There were no talking points offered."
On this morning's "GMA," Robin added "It's time to move on."

Come Back to 'GMA'

Robin Roberts says she was "shocked like everybody else" when she heard about Chris Brown's violent outburst behind the scenes at "GMA" yesterday -- but now, she wants him back on the show!
Roberts appeared on "Good Morning America" this morning -- and said, "We wish [Brown] the absolute best and...we've extended the invitation to him and I sure hope that he takes us up on it, because we'd love to have another chat with him."
Robin also insists she spoke with Chris about the Rihanna questions before yesterday's interview -- saying, "Anytime we have a guest here on the program, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter, the topics that we're going to discuss and we, even right before the interview, I said that to Chris and I was shocked like everybody else was."
No word if Brown plans to take "GMA" up on their offer.
ABC Won't Press Charges

Chris Brown has dodged a bullet after his alleged window-smashing meltdown at "Good Morning America" Tuesday -- because network sources tell TMZ .... ABC has decided NOT to press charges.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the NYPD will not investigate the matter because there is no complaining victim.
That's especially good news for CB -- because he's currently on probation for beating up Rihanna ...
and could have faced prison time if the judge violated his probation on grounds he committed vandalism.
We're told the judge will not violate Chris' probation unless New York prosecutes him ... and that's not going to happen.
No word if Chris will pay for the broken window.
I'm Artsy AND Fartsy!

Chris Brown just arrived to an art gallery in New York City ... sporting smart guy spectacles and a big, fat smirk -- just hours after he went ballistic at "Good Morning America."

Chris Brown exploded in rage behind the scenes at "Good Morning America" this morning ... smashing a window and storming out without a shirt ... sources tell TMZ ... and it was triggered by on-air questions about the Rihanna incident.
ABC sources tell TMZ ... Brown performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she began asking about the infamous incident.
Brown tried to redirect the questions to focus on his album -- but Roberts continued to ask about Brown's legal issues stemming from the Rihanna incident.
We're told after the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security.
We're told Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway. ABC security tells TMZ ... the window was shattered with a chair.
We're told by the time security rushed the area, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building, blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website.
And sources say ... on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down. People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to defuse the situation.
Remember -- Brown is on probation for the felony beating and he's required to obey all laws.
UPDATE 6:49 AM PT: Brown just tweeted, "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t."
UPDATE 6:59 AM PT: Brown has already deleted the previous tweet ... and added a new one that reads, "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"
UPDATE 7:48 AM PT: Glass workers just showed up to fix the window.
We're Calling the Cops
on Chris Brown
3/22/2011 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
ABC staffers called the cops after Chris Brown's tirade this AM to document the broken window in the building, and this could spell big trouble for the famous singer who is currently on probation.
TMZ obtained audio near the dressing room where Chris allegedly took a chair and smashed a window, sending shards of glass onto 43rd Street. During the conversation between the staffer and a glass repairman, the staffer says "I have a police officer coming just to take a look at it before we do any work."
Despite the conversation, NYPD sources tell us ... none of their officers were dispatched to the scene.
If Chris did indeed smash the window, it probably constitutes at least 2 crimes -- vandalism and assault on the passersby below. As a result, the judge in the Rihanna battery case could revoke Chris' probation and, worst case scenario, he could end up in prison.
Chris Approved My

Robin Roberts asked Chris Brown if she could question him about the Rihanna incident BEFORE the live interview began on "GMA" this morning ... this according to sources connected to the production.
Sources tell TMZ ... Roberts insists both she and other "GMA" staff members spoke with Chris before the interview and asked if it would be OK to fire off "a few questions" about the Rihanna incident ... and Chris approved.
As TMZ first reported, Brown flipped out after the interview -- and apparently smashed a window in his dressing room.
Robin is telling people at the show she did NOT try to set him up ... and insists, "I'm pulling for the guy."
As for the broken window, sources say no one in the studio saw Chris throw the chair into the window ... but he was definitely in the dressing room when the window was smashed.
UPDATE 9:19 AM: After Roberts left the "GMA" building, she posted on her Twitter page, "Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself. Just my 2nd day on twitter, wonder what tomorrow will bring?"
