Oh, Honey, No

It’s been a while since a Philly local newsperson made an ass of him or herself nationally. Enter Joyce Evans. I can’t wait for the inevitable on-air apology; I hope Gawker updates the post.

What was she thinking? Even supposing that her follow-up tweet is truthful and she was trying to make a point that mass shootings in real life are serious business, she had to realize how her tweet would be interpreted. It sure as hell looks like she’s making a tacky joke about a tragedy; a person died and another is in critical condition, maybe you shouldn’t use it as an opportunity to make a Breaking Bad reference.

This story makes me glad I get all my Philly news from 6 ABC. None of their anchors felt compelled to report the story with tacky pop culture references.

Until tomorrow.
