Social media–savvy kids are annoying the crap out of Chattanooga ABC-affiliate WTVC NewsChannel 9, going as far as to impersonate a school official in an attempt to get the station to falsely report school closings.
But, as these kids are learning, you can only push WTVC NewsChannel 9 so far. WTVC NewsChannel 9 won’t take your shit. It will strike back, and do so with a vengeance.
Take, for instance, the Twitter direct message above, provided to BuzzFeed News by WTVC NewsChannel 9 web director Dan Lehr. In the exchange, a student tried using a DM to get the station to “inform students of no school tomorrow.”
WTVC NewsChannel 9 promptly destroyed the troublemaker:
Last seen: right before getting owned by WTVC NewsChannel 9.
Kids are also taunting the station on Facebook, asking if their schools are closed. WTVC NewsChannel 9 is pissed at the insinuation that it would withhold such information from the public.
But of course, in the end, the kids win anyway.
Take that, WTVC NewsChannel 9.
