A social media editor for a New Mexico television station accidentally dropped some profane language in a Facebook post intended to remind people about their civic duty.
This week, the manager of a Facebook page used by Albuquerque ABC affiliate KOAT (Channel 7) shared a timely reminder encouraging people to register to vote.
“Please make sure you’re registered to vote,” the image appeared to say when KOAT shared it from another Facebook page.
But eagle-eyed viewers noticed there was more to the message than what appeared in the cropped preview image on Facebook. Clicking the graphic revealed the full message, which included the line: “Seriously, I am not fucking around here.”
The shared post was up for several hours Wednesday morning before KOAT removed it from their Facebook page.
KOAT is owned by Hearst Television, Inc.
