BBC uses photo of wrong George Floyd during Houston funeral coverage

During a news coverage of George Floyd’s funeral, BBC put up an image of New York Jets player George Floyd. The incorrect photo was shown for around 5 seconds, alongside other accurate photos of the Minneapolis man killed by cops last month. A spokesperson added that the network was investigating what happened, and that ’the BBC would never seek to cause any offence’.
