KTVU, a news station out of the Bay Area committed a major boo boo of epically racist proportions today when they released an exclusive news report citing the names of the pilots for Asiana Flight 214 that crashed last week at San Francisco airport. According to KTVU, who claims they verified the pilots names through the NTSB, the names of the responsible pilots were Captain Sum Ting Wong, Wi Tu Lo, Ho Lee Fuk and Bang Ding Ow. Yeah, those are clearly not correct.
According to NTSB Public Affairs Officer Peter Knudson, “I don’t know who [KTVU] got that from, but we do not release names.” Somebody gon’ get fired over this.
