Live TV mishap
When it comes to live television, things aren’t always going to go 100 per cent right. But in the day and age of social media, it’s difficult to get away with making mistakes without it going viral.
Unfortunately, one Jordanian television host has fallen victim to exactly that. Even worse, it was a case of mistaken information about Her Majesty Queen Rania.
Earlier this week, presenter Lara Tamash was discussing Queen Rania’s recent public outing to mobile game developer ‘Tamatem’, which means ‘tomatoes’ in English.
However, the host mistook the company’s focus, stating it produced “tomatoes and ketchup”.
بعد التقرير الرائع الذي تم نشره من التلفزيون الأردني عن شركة طماطم ضمن برنامج يسعد صباحك,
تفاجأنا بتقرير آخر يتحدث عن زيارة جلالة الملكة رانيا العبدلله لشركة طماطم وعن تخصص شركتنا بانتاج وتصنيع البندورة والكتشب #ألعاب_طماطم #tamatemgames pic.twitter.com/l4HNhQigIc

Catching wind of the mistake, the company was quick to post on Twitter poking fun at the situation. Sharing a clip of the television segment, the company joked it was “surprised” to learn it specialised in the “production of tomatoes and ketchup”.
The television host eventually caught wind of her mistake, and took to Facebook to apologise for the blunder referring to it as “an unintended error”, according to English Alarabiya.
No harm, no foul — and we’re sure many people had a bit of a giggle because of it.
