In a humiliating moment for US President, a TV channel ‘accidentally’ depicted Barack Obama as a rape suspect.

The incident happened on February 13 when Fox News anchor Kathleen Bade spoke about a sex assault suspect at San Diego State University.

And, bam, next came the US President’s picture on the profile of the rape suspect.

Viewers were shocked and although the photo was only up for five seconds, the damage was done.

The blunder was immediately captured and circulated on social media.

Much chaos was created when the assignment editor Mike Wille refused to apologise and mentioned, “Anchors don’t do that when it’s a ‘small thing’ like that.”
