A video clip of a live news broadcast on Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) on Wednesday 9 June has had Twitter wondering about a possible beef between the anchor and the sports reporter on the TV programme.
The news anchor is seen introducing a story about an upcoming boxing match, following which she crosses to Jessica, the sports reporter who is in the same studio. It is at this point that Jessica interrupts to school her colleague about what she should have said, leading to the now-famous line: “Jessica, we are live.”
Twitter could not get over Jessica and her sauciness:
That “Jessica we are Live” ruined a good thing for us .. it was just bout to get 🔥🔥 live live on NBC news 🤣

Jessica has since tweeted that she forgot they were live.
There’s no any beef between us, my colleague forgot the script and I was just trying to correct her but I forgot we were live 😭😭💔
