August 19, 2013 Florida (The Blaze) – Rebeca Seitz’s Thursday began like any other lazy summer morning as she and her children sleepily ate their breakfast while watching “Good Morning America’s” cheerful programming. But the the day took an unexpected turn for the explicit when a television advertisement featuring a steamy sex scene streamed through her living room.
“The GMA segment went to commercial,” the Naples, Fla., mother wrote on her blog. “And then, wham. Confusion. Disbelief. Did that just flash on my TV screen? In front of 8-year-old Andy?!”
The ad in question was for the new ABC drama “Betrayal,” and featured a pair of naked-looking actors engaging in some pretty adult behavior.
