Oops! Jennifer Aniston set social media on fire on Monday, November 21, after she appeared on the U.K.’s The One Show and mentioned “sex toys” in a studio shared with disabled children.
The former Friends star was on the live early evening program to promote her new movie Office Christmas Party, but it was her controversial comment that stole the limelight.
Aniston, 47, was chatting alongside the film’s directors, Will Speck and Josh Gordon, when she made the blunder.
The pair had been asked by hosts Matt Baker and Alex Jones if Aniston’s character in her new flick was like Rachel from Friends or her sex-obsessed Horrible Bosses role.
Gordon said she was “a little bit of both” before Aniston interjected with “just without the sex toys.”
The problem was there was a large group of disabled children from the Rickshaw Challenge, celebrating the success of BBC charity Children in Need, who were also guests on the show.
It was also two hours before the watershed, the point in time after which a show with adult content may be broadcast in the U.K.
Baker desperately tried to move the questioning along and ignore what she’d said, but it didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter.
Viewers were quick to comment with one saying: “JenA kicking it out with ‘sex toys’ comment #oneshow cue: producer sending electrical shock to presenters earpiece.”
Another wrote: "Jennifer Aniston just mentioned 'sex toys' infront of disabled children on the #bbc #oneshow #ChildrenInNeed heavy awkward!”
