Local news station accidentally tweets link to porn instead of weather forecast

Oh dear.

YESTERDAY MORNING, A Memphis news station attempted to tweet a link to an online radar tracking rain and storms.

Unfortunately, however, it accidentally tweeted a link to porn.

The tweet was soon deleted, but not before screencaps captured the tweet in all its glory.

WREG News Channel 3 soon tweeted out the requisite apology and blamed public Wi-Fi for the gaffe in another tongue-in-cheek tweet.

They also encouraged their followers to donate to a number of charitable organisations.

Following the gaffe, porn site in question, Pornhub, attempted to start a conversation with WREG News Channel 3 over Twitter.

Whoever is manning the WREG account has wisely opted not to respond.

Good call, we say.

This headline/photo combination is attention-grabbing to say the least >

This woman’s book about attempting to marry George Clooney has some very unfortunate timing >
