A French radio channel has apologized after publishing the obituaries of many prominent and living men and women.
Obituaries for Pele, Clint Eastwood, and Queen Elizabeth II were live on the Site of Radio France Internationale (RFI) on Monday.
RFI stated in an announcement a”technical difficulty” led to the incorrect publications.
“Our specialized teams are mobilized to rectify this significant bug and ascertain its origin and duties.”
Additional obituaries published on the Site were for celebrity Brigitte Bardot, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and former US President Jimmy Carter.
Broadcasters frequently prepare obituary substance beforehand to print it immediately when a departure is declared.
RFI explained that”approximately a hundred” of those draft obituaries were uploaded to their site on Monday morning, in addition to partner websites such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
The radio station said the technical difficulty occurred when they had been transferring its site to another content publication system.
“Each of the posts is in the process of being eliminated from RFI’s digital surroundings and spouse platforms”
“An internal investigation has been conducted to ascertain the causes of the unfortunate incident”
Former Minister and Ex-President of Olympique Marseille, Bernard Tapie, whose obituary was involuntarily printed, has formerly had his death declared by two additional French press outlets.
