In Tastiest Olympic Gaffe Yet, News Station Confuses Pyeongchang with PF Chang's

S. Korean Men’s Curling Team Suffer Defeat in Opening Match

Over the weekend, Chicago-area news watchers noticed something odd about a segment on the 2018 Winter Olympics hosted in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

"PyeongChang and P.F. Chang's both start with P and end with the same "chang" sound, but you can't equate the two".

That's the Asian-themed restaurant, not the city in the South Korea. There was nothing wrong with his report but the graphic illustration resting behind his shoulder on the screen displayed the phrase "P.F. Chang 2018" with an incorrect Olympics logo. Nicholas said that it was a mix-up that led to anchor Mark Rivera reading a story with the wrong graphic featured.

A spokesperson explained to the Chicago Tribune that the graphic was created for a "satirical piece" in which "viewers were encouraged to invent their own Olympic sports".

That's right! A fresh new teaser of " Oru Adaar Love " is her and it has viral written all over it. Abdul Kauser, a businessman who also signed the complaint, said, "We don't take to streets".

Jayme Nicholas, spokesman for the ABC affiliate, apologized for the mistake Monday, the Chicago Tribune reported.

P.F.Chang's further clarified the situation, tweeting, "Contrary to this broadcast, we're not hosting the games".

"Please tell me this didn't really happen", one user tweeted, to which someone else replied: "@PFChangs if team United States of America gets over 35 medals, can you give away some free food?"
