A Good Morning America reporter has become a national icon after being sighted on television without any pants on.
Will Reeve filmed a live segment for the show from his home due to the ongoing lockdown to discuss a new initiative about pharmacies using drones to deliver prescriptions to people.
However, at one point, the camera focused on Reeve himself, and many viewers noticed that he was recording himself without any pants on despite making the effort to put on a blue shirt and a smart gray blazer. Reeve failed to realize that his bare legs and boxers were visible on camera, prompting Twitter users to call him out.
“No Pants Tuesday on @GMA I assume,” one user joked, sharing a cry-laugh emoji. “To the @GMA reporter who forgot to wear pants for this morning’s broadcast: you are officially the most relatable person on television and my new favorite news anchor,” an entertained user wrote.
The reporter took the jokes in stride and even relived the moment on Twitter. “I have arrived… in the most hilariously mortifying way possible,” he tweeted after his segment went viral.
He also clarified that he was wearing shorts in the video, and not his boxer briefs. In an official statement, he said, “Trying to be efficient, I got ready for a post-GMA workout a little too soon this morning. The camera angle, along with friends, family, and several hundred strangers on social media made me rethink my morning routine.”
“Any sartorial tips from these people who are wearing a belt, trousers and shoes during their work video calls at home are more welcome. Now, back to work. Wearing pants,” he added.

I cannot stop thinking about the GMA reporter who thought nobody could see he wasn’t wearing pants. Would 100% happen to me— 💭 (@judiforeman) April 28, 2020
@GMA if your reporters don’t want to wear pants while working from home SUPPORT THEM! All y’all are working from home some not wearing pants, some not wearing bras. Freeing isnt it? @TomLlamasABC you do you bro. Don’t wear pants if you don’t want to!— LilDabbySweetcakes (@dabby_lil) April 28, 2020
