BBC Obliviously Quotes Tweet By Hardcore Gay Porn Site In An Article About Trump

While covering the investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump administration, BBC News referenced a tweet by TitanMen, an account that sometimes tweets newsworthy political commentary, but mostly just tweets graphic images of men having anal sex.

Listen, we’re not here to cover politics, but we will cover coverage of politics when it’s funny, and BBC News did something funny not too long ago.  

In an article about Donald Trump’s twitter response to the indictment of his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, in which the president called the investigation a “witch hunt,” the BBC reached out to Twitter for a comment. Apparently they didn’t do too much of an investigation themselves when choosing the included tweet, because if they had they probably wouldn’t have gone with this one.  

Here’s the tweet as included in the original version of the article.

There’s nothing wrong with the tweet itself, but unbeknownst to the BBC writer, the account that the tweet comes from is a hardcore gay porn production company that regularly posts very, very explicit images of gay sex. And that’s cool, I mean TitanMen are doing their thing, but for the BBC to associate themselves with an account that posts such content is obviously not super professional.

Before long, the BBC realized what they had done and switched out TitanMen’s tweet for this one from a more PG-rated account.

 

But not before TitanMen could comment on their moment in the sun.

They commented, “We like to think of ourselves as the thinking man’s porn!”

And that may actually be a great way to describe them. Amongst the veritable reservoir of dicks you can find on their Twitter feed, you’ll find countless political articles and commentary on current events.

If penises and politics are your thing, give TitanMen a gander. But if, like BBC News, that’s not how you hang, you’re probably not going to want to click on those embedded tweets...
