Twitter-powered Billboard Inadvertently Suggests Alabama News Anchors Are Rapists

Twitter-powered Billboard in Alabama

From Telegraph UK:

“The advertisement, for WPMI-TV in Alabama, showed the station’s anchors, Greg Peterson and Kym Thurman, with their top weatherman Derek Beasley, alongside the latest headline and the words ‘Right now on Twitter’.

“Unfortunately for the station, at one stage the top headline on Twitter read ‘Three accused of gang rape in Monroeville,’ and the misleading juxtaposition was caught on camera by a passing motorist as he drove through Mobile, Alabama.”
