The Army has launched an investigation after pornographic content was broadcast during a live video stream of a Special Forces training change of command ceremony on Thursday, May 30th. The incident occurred during the 1st Special Warfare Training Group (Airborne) ceremony at Fort Liberty’s John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School in North Carolina, which was streamed live on Facebook.

Viewers reported that the video feed abruptly switched to a scene of a nude man masturbating, as shared on various social media platforms, including the U.S. Army subreddit. The identity of the man and whether he is connected to the military remains unclear.

I’ve decided not to provide any links to the offensive imagery for a couple of reasons:

  1. I’ve seen it and will never be able to unsee it. Trust me, it’s definitely NSFW, and you don’t want to go there.
  2. It may encourage other idiots to hijack other military feeds in the future. No need to do that.

Although it’s a serious and disturbing incident, Duffel Blog chose to have a bit of fun with it on X.
