Default Air bubbles in bottling bucket

Just finished bottling my first AG and I thought it would be a good idea to put a lid on the bottling bucket. I didn't think about the fact that there would be suction from the beer flowing out of the bottling wand, and after like 6 bottles beer stopped flowing through the hose. I pressed the wand to the bottom of the next bottle like a dummy and immediately heard suction and then air bubbles in the bottling bucket. It sounded kinda like a water cooler when they bubble. I immediately pried the lid open and began filling bottles again. Do you think the bubbles i sent through my beer will oxidize it??

The bubbles will absolutely oxidize your beer.

But the EXTENT to which your beer will be oxidized will be negligible. No way you even notice. RDWHAHB.

All beer gets exposed when racking, etc. Unless you exposed it to a bunch of air, it'll be just fine.
