TV Station Confuses PF Chang's with Pyeongchang

posted by Kat -

A TV station in Chicago accidentally confused Pyeongchang (the host of  the 2018 Winter Olympics) and P.F. Chang’s (the Asian-themed chain  restaurant) in a news graphic over the weekend. A spokesperson for  WLS-TV has since apologized and told the Chicago Tribune that the  graphic was intended to be used in a satirical sports broadcast that  aired Friday. 

Twitter users were quick to mock the station for its  gaffe. "Hey, this mistake could happen to... PRACTICALLY NO ONE," one  tweeted. Another joked, "If the Olympics were held at P.F. Chang’s, I’d  be a gold medalist." P.F. Chang's also got in on the fun by tweeting,  "Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games."
