The Olympic men’s diving events have gained a slew of gawking fans, but not for the right reasons.
The unfortunate placement of the information bar (you know, those ones with the athlete’s name, country and total scores) on the screen makes it look like the divers are — uh, naked.
Yep, you read it right: Nude. Exposed. Stripped. In the buff. Birthday suit-ing it.
These “accidental censorship” moments are most glaring during the shots where they’re showering in their Speedos in-between dives,or during interviews.
The clueless divers play it up for the camera, smiling at the audience, and flashing thumbs-up signs.
Meanwhile, at home, viewers of all ages are looking at an almost-NSFW screen with shots that aren’t that far off from a lot of adult films.
The tiny swimming trunks are already making us sweat enough as it is, but this?
Twitter is having a field day with these, as one might expect.
It’s so weird for these Olympic divers to dive in the nude. Bravo to NBC figuring out a way to censor the nudity. pic.twitter.com/bisSgDZtsw

For a second, I thought maybe there was a Naked Olympics going on simultaneously with the regular Olympics pic.twitter.com/VSeRRGvn3m
