Middle Finger Mishap: BBC News Chief Presenter Maryam Moshiri’s startling on-air incident shakes viewers and BBC’s Image

OHMYGOSSIP – BBC News Now faced an unexpected incident on December 6 when Chief Presenter Maryam Moshiri inadvertently displayed the middle finger before commencing the news program at 14:00. Although it was an unintentional act as Moshiri was unaware that she was already on air, the incident had a significant impact on the BBC’s reputation.

What does showing the middle finger mean?
It is considered a phallic symbol, originally meant to threaten violent sexual penetration, which has developed into its contemporary meaning of “fuck you” or “go fuck yourself.” It is now often used to express displeasure, rage, excitement, or protest.
