Porn broadcast on giant public LED screen for 12 minutes

Visitors to Dongfanghong Square in Lanzhou, China, got an unexpected treat yesterday: 12 minutes of porn on a massive public LED display.

According to reports, security guards who noticed the surprising broadcast "cut off the electricity and found the person responsible." The 26-meter screen usually broadcasts material related to the gymnasium upon which it is installed; the worker responsible says he clicked on an ad. He was given a 15-day suspension and ordered to pay a 3,000 Yuan ($500) fine.
