Um, PF Chang Olympics? TV station apologizes for graphics flub

But according to the Chicago Tribune, during a Saturday morning broadcast, anchor Mark Rivera was left introducing a report on the political backdrop to the Winter Games with a graphic reading "P.F. Chang 2018" sitting over his shoulder.

A local TV station in Chicago has apologized after displaying a graphic that mixed up Pyeongchang, South Korea, with P.F. Chang's, an Asian-themed chain restaurant.

To be honest, however, WLS-TV spokesperson Jayme Nicholas' explanation was just as head-scratching. Nicholas apologized for the mistake, the Tribune reported.

Ah, yes, scenic P.F. Chang's. P.F. Chang's is the name of an "Asian restaurant concept" chain with over 200 locations in the USA, including several in the Chicago area.

Aamir Khan's first unrequited love revealed, courtesy Twitter trend
In no time, social media went into a frenzy with users writing to Aamir wanting to know about his first love aka Pehla Nasha . That is why, he said, "I always have a special emotion for lovers who fall in love but they don't get the love they want".

As a result, there was a graphics mixup and everyone who was happily unaware that the "P.F. Chang" Olympics were a thing a sports anchor in Chicago giggles at, their bubble has been unmercifully shattered.

The satirical graphic was apparently made for sports anchor and part-time comedian Mark Giangreco as part of his "alternative Olympics" bits. As one Twitter user replied: "The lettuce wraps are gold medal worthy".

The Chicago station's Pyeongchang card comes after an OH high school wrote an apology over students who yelled "P.F. Chang's" and "go back to China" at a multiracial away team member during a basketball game.
