Tina Fey Nipple Slip: Emmy Awards' Most Tweeted About Moment?

by at .  Updated at .

Tina Fey suffered a brief but obvious nipple slip at the 2013 Emmy Awards, sparking an onslaught of Twitter commentary at the acclaimed actress' expense.

If you blinked, or aren't an eagle-eyed viewer whose goal in life is to see celebrity nipples on screen, you probably missed the wardrobe malfunction.

But it happened. Oh, did it ever.

Some might even say it was one of the more exciting or at least interesting things that happened during a broadcast derided by critics as bland.

In any case, when the comedian took the stage with Tracey Wigfield to accept their award for Best Comedy Writing, she flashed more than her trophy.

At least she of all people can take a joke. See the Tina Fey nipple slip and some of the notable reactions to this unexpected viral event after the jump:

Many dubbed Lena Dunham worst dressed at the event. But at least she won't be labeled least dressed, are we right? Yes. That (dis)honor is all Tina's.

It lit up Twitter like no other event that night. While we're not talking Miley Cyrus levels of buzz here, but for the Emmys, this was a significant deal.

Fey fans weren’t shy about sharing their thoughts on this television event, and most of them seemed pretty excited about the experience. Take a look:

@BreeDaAuraGod tweeted with joy, “I finally got to see Tina Fey’s nipple. And yes, they were just how I expected. Lovely.”

@_brian_shannon wrote, “Just saw Tina Fey’s nipple for a half-second. Success.”


@baconandpuppies said, “My #NFL team lost, #Dexter ended, & #BreakingBad is almost over. Thank You to Tina Fey’s nipple on the #Emmys for making my TV day better”

@pekusia said, “Tonight I saw Tina Fey’s nipple. Thanks Emmy.”

@mindfuldribble said, “How is nobody else tweeting about everyone just saw Tina Fey’s nipple. Whatever. Football.”

@luxnightmare tweeted, “Most important moment of the Emmy’s? When Tina Fey’s nipple made a guest appearance.”

Indeed. Whether you're a celebrity gossip site or @Louiss24 watching live TV awards shows on the couch, this here is what dreams are made of.
