CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO)- TBS upset a lot of Clevelanders with its coverage of the Indians sweep when the network photoshopped a picture of their analysts on top of a burning river to symbolize the city.
Fans took to Cleveland 19's hashtag, #CLEvsTBS, to express their anger with the network and demand a public apology. The hashtag amassed more than 327,000 impressions in just 24 hours. The tweets showed off everything beautiful about Cleveland, proving to TBS that they made the wrong move with their pic.
TBS issued a statement about the image, saying they "regret" using the burning river image.
