According to Deadline, "The BBC has edited a YouTube video of a Sabrina Carpenter performance after the singer made an apparent reference to a porn trope. Carpenter, a former Disney Channel star, appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge last week and sang her song Nonsense, with a recording of the performance uploaded to YouTube."

The moment in question came when Carpenter went off script, leading her to using language that the network deemed offensive enough to censor when it put the clip online.

"The original video featured Carpenter’s riff at the end of her song, during which she said: “How quickly can you take your clothes off, pop quiz. I’m American I am not British, so BBC it stands for something different. This live lounge is so lit because I’m in it, innit," the article continued.

Initially, the network posted an uncensored clip, but they quickly realized their error, and uploaded the censored version. They even issued an apology.

"An unedited version of the video was briefly posted in error, and the correct version is now available for viewers to enjoy," the network said.
