Lamar Odom was caught in an awkward moment on live TV, and he didn’t know it.
The former NBA star was not only booted from Dancing With the Stars Monday (October 7) night, but he was also in the camera frame during a backstage moment when he began adjusting his manhood.
After a few adjustments this way and that way, he even looked down at this for a brief moment.
All the while, host Erin Andrews stood in front of Odom and was oblivious to what was happening as she chatted with another dancer.
“It makes me feel like a little creep,” the 39-year-old pro-baller told Hollywood Life.
According to Odom, his on-air incident was due to his “blessed” status down there.
“I’m blessed. I guess that means I’m blessed,” he said.
“I had to adjust myself; it’s the outfit,” Odom continued. “But it’s the truth...you understand that problem. It’s nothing to be ashamed about. I had fun.”
The live TV blooper that won’t soon be forgotten set social media ablaze with many insisting he wasn’t just adjusting, he was scratching an itch.
“What in the ‘Itchy & scratchy’ is going on hea?” Milan Christopher commented on The Shade Room’s post of Odom’s embarrassing moment.
Another person commented with a nickname, “lamar scrotum.”
“Oh myyy, I’m dead!” another commented. “What a time to live in….nothing goes unnoticed!”
“Lord he can’t catch a break,” another wrote.
Despite the fun social media has had with his compromising moment on live TV, Odom was in good spirits after his run on the popular competition show.
“I feel all right. I feel good,” he told ET. “The sun will shine tomorrow. I’ll wake up, work out, move forward.”
