TV station sorry for PF Chang Olympics graphic

A Chicago TV station apologized for using "P.F. Chang" in a graphic about the Winter Olympics, instead of Pyeongchang, the name of the South Korean county hosting the Games.

The satirical graphic was apparently made for sports anchor and part-time comedian Mark Giangreco as part of his "alternative Olympics" bits. And that's because, in addressing the political aspects of this year's Winter Games, Rivera was positioned directly next to a graphic that identified the Olympics site as a Chinese bistro - "P.F. Chang 2018". Satire is The Weekend Update, it's not realizing that the Olympics are in an Asian country and then dragging your knuckles across the keyboard to think of the most generic punchline ever.

People took to social media to discuss the error.


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.

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

The chain also replied "Looks like someone was hungry" when another person asked them about their input on the image.
