The British Broadcasting Corporation censored a completely innocuous word in a recent documentary, just in case people would find it offensive.
The word: “girl.”
In a documentary ahead of the Commonwealth Games, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in July, host Mark Beaumont interviewed 19 year-old judo champion Cynthia Rahming and her family.
Rahming and Beaumont grappled, with the fighter taking the 31 year-old host to the mat.
“I am not sure I can live that down — being beaten by a 19-year-old girl,” he said in the documentary.
The episode originally aired in April, but in a re-run, the BBC removed the line containing the apparently offensive description of a young female.
Beaumont was apparently unaware of the editorial decision.
