Music mogul Simon Cowell’s relaxed nature got him into trouble on “The X Factor” when he appeared to suffer an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction during the judges’ houses stage of the competition.
The 56-year-old listened to contestants while sitting between Mel B and Emma Bunton on his sofa with one leg folded up against the other.
In a picture shared on Twitter, Cowell can be seen sporting a pair of black shades, white shirt and matching pants.
But his position promoted a Twitter outburst as viewers mistook his bare toe as his private part and thought that he was wearing an unchained pant.
“Has Simon Cowell had a wardrobe malfunction or is he enjoying these auditions a bit too much,” one user wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Another one wrote: “So… Simon Cowell has had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction.”
Twitteraties didn’t stop here as one user wrote: “So nice to see ‘Little Simon’ again. Simon Cowell”.
