It was a shocking moment when an Australian TV reporter was licked and then stoned during the Melbourne Cup live broadcast.
Poor reporter Lee Steele was talking to the camera from the Ascot racecourse in Perth when a noisy crowd behind her burst in.
All the social distance guides looked out the window as the fans behind the couple cheered.
But the bad thing has not come.
When Steele continued her address on Channel 10, a man jumped behind her and took his pants off, revealing his ass. Steele didn’t know at all but the camera operator quickly tried to zoom in to hide what was going on.
However, they were not fast enough and the man’s barebones were visible to all who were watching from home.
With Steele no one wiser than what happened, reporters on set told her what she missed. Predictably, she looked completely heartbroken at what had happened.
Social media lit up in response to the depraved scenes, which followed Twilight Payment̵7;s January 25 victory for Irish coach Joseph O’Brien.
One user said: “Was the moon in the Perth live match the highlight of the Melbourne Cup 10 channel?”
Another wrote: “@ Channel10AU took your poor reporter out of that disgusting crowd in Perth.
“A woman TAKES her then some drunken idiot turned the camera.”
