There’s awkward errors and then there’s really awkward errors: subtitles on a BBC News weather report this week accidentally warned Glastonbury Gestival-goers to prepare for “rape” instead of rain. This Instagram pic shows the “unfortunate typo,” as a BBC spokesperson put it. I’m sure most newswatchers put it together themselves when the subtitles showed the newscaster advised packing one’s “wellies” — not a good deterrent of sexual assault. [Independent UK]
