Nigel Owens’ hilarious response to BBC subtitle problem is spot on

Nigel Owens has responded in typical fashion to the BBC ‘gay’ gaffe on their subtitling service.

The incident happened during Saturday’s Six Nations Championship clash between Scotland and England at Murrayfield.



Owens, though, the first openly-gay referee at the highest level in rugby, was able to have a good laugh about it on Twitter.

He posted: “I must say I had a giggle when I saw this. I thought bloody hell this voice recognition is good.

“Shame it wasn’t about 25yrs ago it would have helped me find out who I truly was sooner then. Mistakes happen so no worries at all on my behalf BBC it actually made me smile.”
