From our friends at Sports Illustrated:
The Olympics are not being hosted by an American chain restaurant.
February 12, 2018
A Chicago TV station says it didn’t mean to confuse the host city of the 2018 Olympics with the name of an Asian-themed American chain restaurant.
Chicago’s ABC affiliate, WLS, aired a graphic during Saturday morning”s newscast with the Olympic rings and the phrase “P. F. Chang’s 2018.”
A spokesperson for the network told the Chicago Tribune that the graphic was created for a “satirical” segment on Friday and was inadvertently re-aired during a report on the political environment at the Olympics.
The goof also caught the eye of the restaurant chain.
Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games. 🙂 https://t.co/3HW694pE4J
