The BBC apologizes after a push notification from their app warns users there is no nudity in the latest episode of the HBO show

BBC News readers got a shock Tuesday when they were alerted by its news app that there would be no nudity in the latest episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

“NYPD Twitter campaign ‘backfires’ after hashtag hijacked,” the BBC News sent to users. “Push sucks! Pull blows! BREAKING NEWS No nudity in latest episode of Game of Thrones!!! MORE BREAKING NEWS IIIIIII like testing.”

“This is a breaking news story and the BBC News app will bring you updates as soon as they are available,” the message added.

Stunned readers quickly took to social media to ask if the BBC had been hacked.

However, 15 minutes following the incident, the BBC sent another alert to its readers informing them it was only a “test.”

“We’ve been in the process of testing new functionality for our apps and a test message was sent in error this morning,” a BBC spokesperson said.
