A Chicago-area TV station got some heat Monday for posting a graphic confusing Pyeongchang, South Korea, the site of the 2018 Winter Olympics, with P.F. Chang's, the fast-casual Chinese restaurant chain, over the weekend.

The graphic was created for a satirical segment that aired on Friday but was mistakenly shown Saturday on ABC 7 during a straight live news segment read by weekend anchor Mark Rivera, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Jayme Nicholas, spokesman for the ABC affiliate, apologized for the mistake Monday, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The mistake went viral online, however, and drew the attention of the restaurant chain, which tweeted, “contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games.”

Other Twitter users also had fun with the mistake.
