Awkward moments on-air are quite common for news anchors. Take this particular case, for instance:
Jason Mohammad was hosting BBC’s crime show ‘Crimewatch‘ when he came upon news of a Slovakian who was convicted of brutally attacking a pensioner named Colin Butlin using a pair of brass knuckles.
The screen flashed convict Viktor Lakatos‘ mugshot. But when viewers saw the uncanny resemblance between Jason and the convict, social media went wild posting about it, particularly on Twitter.
Twitter user Alice Nicholas, a Cornish police officer, tweeted: “That awkward moment…. #Crimewatch.”
Her post was retweeted more than 800 times. When Jason saw the tweet he answered with:
‘Crimewatch’ is a long-running high-profile British television program that reconstructs major unsolved crimes in order to gain information from viewers who could possibly assist in solving them.
