Also known as: Big Brother Skateboarding / BB Magazine / BigBrother Magazine



Big Brother Subscriber Mixup
In 2000 there was a mixup of subscriptions lists, resulting in Big Brother subscribers getting the adult hardcore magazine Taboo.

Information

Parents of young skateboarders were horrified when their kids received a copy of Taboo, an adult magazine which specializes in fetishistic material, instead of the Big Brother skateboarding magazine.

The incident was caused by a mixup of subscripton lists at Larry Flynt Publications, who also publishes Hustler and many other pornographic magazines.

Larry Flynt Publications fired the employees responsible for the mixup, and also sent a letter to Big Brother subscriber and parents.

"The magazine mailed in error was an adult publication and should be destroyed immediately.

LFP Inc. would like to apologize for this grievous error and assure you that steps have been taken to ensure that an error like this will never happen again.

As a parent myself, I am aware of how serious this error is." - Candice Lindsey, circulation manager


The incident was parodied on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where one of the band members was delivered an issue of Big Brother on stage, suggesting that he subscribed to Taboo.
