CBS Station Accidentally Links to Porn Site in Local Weather Forecast Tweet, Sparks #Rockbone Trend

by at .

Today's weather forecast? Surprisingly HOT AND STEAMY for October, at least in Memphis, where a local CBS Station accidentally linked to a porn site instead.

News channel WREG posted a tweet on Tuesday morning reminding viewers to "use our interactive radar to track the rain and storms," with this link, hilariously:

Rock Bone

SPOILER ALERT: That link does not go to their interactive radar.

PornHub (dot) com, for the uninitiated, puts a lot of different things on your radar. Just ask user Rockbone (possibly Rockboner) who got a nice traffic boost today.

The tweet has since been deleted by the station, and WREG has apologized, seemingly blaming a hacker for the incident in a follow-up Tweet ...

The station also made lemonade out of lemons as the story went viral, posting (non-porn) links to a list of charities and urging people to consider donating.

That was awesome of them, but so were the jokes that ensued.

Twitter promptly did what it does best and started sharing this at the speed of light, with the puns and jokes and the hashtag #rockbone trending.

Well handled, WREG, and Twitter. Everyone is a winner here.

Not so much in the case of these social media users ...
