Kansas City CBS affiliate KCTV saw the way Tuesday night's Game 1 was headed in the World Series and knew some of their viewers would be looking for respite from the Royals' loss, so it decided to offer them an alternative in an extremely poorly worded tweet.
The news station realized the mistake quickly and apologized before offering a considerably less morbid version of the tweet.
We worded that previous tweet horribly and we are very sorry. It has been deleted.— KCTV5 - Kansas City (@KCTV5) October 22, 2014
The Royals lost the first game of the Fall Classic to the San Francisco Giants 7-1, marking their first loss of this postseason.
