Warning to reality TV show contestants

... and it's a warning that everyone in broadcasting is aware of by now : Don't forget that your audience could be antyone and everyone. Including government officials:

A Leicestershire 73-year-old who wowed audiences by breakdancing on Britain's Got Talent has had his benefit stopped.

Fred Bowers said the allowance he received for a leg injury has been suspended while the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) investigates.


the moral of the story is that if you're doing something that you shouldn't in front of a diverse audience, don't be surprised if someone, somewhere has some kind of objection.
