The BBC have been being accused of being politically biased by blurring out the t-shirt of Clean Bandit’s Grace Chatto.
Plenty of viewers were confused when the band appeared on screen in a pre-recorded video message on BBC One’s coverage of the One Love Manchester on Sunday night.
In the video, Grace was wearing white t-shirt featuring the Nike ‘swoosh’ and the word ‘Corbyn’.

Some of the 14.5 million viewers have reacted with accusations of bias when Jeremy Corbyn’s name was blurred out from her top when the message – which was recorded at Radio 1’s Big Weekend last Saturday – was broadcast.
The BBC presumably made the decision as it cannot be seen to promote any one political party over another, but it hasn’t stopped some people angrily taking to Twitter.
They blurred the girl from Clean Bandit's T-shirt because it had Corbyn on it. The BBC's bias for the tories is a disgrace.

I think the BBC blurred out the Clean Bandit yoke's Corbyn tshirt because nobody is having that they aren't massively big posh Tories.

Last night’s concert was organised by Ariana Grande to raise money for those affected by the terror attack which happened after her Manchester show two weeks ago, leaving 22 people dead and more than 100 injured.
Artists in the star-studded line-up included Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher and Black Eyed Peas who took to the stage at Old Trafford cricket ground to play in support of the victims and their families.
More than £2 million was raised in just three hours. Click here to donate to One Love Manchester.
