Outrage after ABC drops Exelby over gaffe


Unfortunately for Australia's ABC24 News Anchor, Natasha Exelby, she was caught on live TV. The jolt of shock when she realises what's happened is priceless.

Ch-ch-check out the support and self-posted bloopers (below)!

However unlike the good natured response to Aengus's live mishap, it was reported that her bosses at ABC News chose to remove her from the on-air roster following the unfortunate gaffe.

The story Journalists put their bloopers out in solidarity with Natasha Exelby first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald.

"While she is not now doing any on-air shifts, this will be subject to normal performance management".

Comments were both critical of the station's harsh actions and complimentary of Exelby's accomplishments.

The presenter saw the amusing side: "Thank U all for ur generous support". "Not my finest hour. Myself and my mesmerising pen honourably salute you!" she said. But in case you were wondering, they happen to be just as in need of quick breaks, like the rest of us.

Wendy Harmer, the host of Mornings on ABC Radio, tweeted to Ms Exelby to say she fell victim to gripping daydreams often.


I, for one, stand with Exelby. But I also have to take some responsibility here.

Apparently, she stopped paying attention while the prerecorded segment was playing and missed her cue on live television.

The Internet predictably responded, with hundreds of retweets with messages of support and tales of like circumstances pouring in, along with a petition on Change.org calling for her reinstatement. She was staring at a pen without objective. Her eyes drift upward toward the camera before widening in sudden cognition that she's on air as she gasps: "now to sport".

Natasha Exelby's stunning news blooper on the ABC, after apparently being hypnotised by a pen during a sports news package, has now gone more than viral. Later, she was forced to apologise for her conduct.

Frankly, I'm just impressed that there were no eruptions of profanity.

'I got a case of the giggles a little bit earlier while reading some very serious news and if I have offended anyone I am sincerely sorry'.

Though Natasha soon acknowledged this, her reaction after settling down continuing the program was epic and you can not miss it.
