Channel 2 News Anchor (Okland) Reads Fake Asian Pilot Names

(Youtube keeps deleting the actual video.)


KTVU Pranked With Fake Asiana Flight 214 Pilot Names | "Ho Lee Fuk" Prank! - 'Ho Lee Fuk': Someone Pranked San Francisco TV Station Into Reporting Fabricated Names Of Asiana Pilots "Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk" and "Bang Ding Ow" — were obviously fake. A local Fox affiliate, the San Francisco powerhouse station KTVU, is dealing with the fallout of a major error on Friday. During their noon broadcast, a report on the deadly Asiana Airlines crash took a turn for the unintentionally offensive when they broadcast the names of pilots in charge of that flight. The mangled Asian-sounding names were, in fact, thinly-disguised expletives mocking the sentiments expressed by the crash victims and their families.

The supposed names of the crash victims broadcast on KTVU included "Sum Ting Wong," "Ho Lee Fuk," and "Bang Ding Ow."

A KTVU anchor later apologized for the error. She said that the names were inaccurate in spite of the fact that a National Transpiration Safety Board spokesperson confirming them.
