A news station in Chicago accidentally confused PyeongChang, the location of the Olympics, with P.F. Chang’s, the American-Asian fast casual dining chain.
Chicago’s ABC News Affiliate, LS-CH. 7 made the catastrophic mistake of confusing PyeongChang with P.F. Chang’s on live television and the internet is tearing them apart.
Holy crap, that’s bad! How did NO ONE working there catch that?! And what could arguably be even worse is their excuse for this mistake.

That logo was created for a “satirical piece”? Hmmm… okay, sure.
Of course, this image was circulated all over the internet and a few Twitter users had something to say about it.

My personal favorite:
Last time I went to PF Chang's, I thought it was pretty good. But I never thought to myself "These guys need to host the Olympics."

Even P.F. Chang’s chimed in!
Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games. 🙂 https://t.co/3HW694pE4J
