Drew Carey Twitter Punches Little Rock Station for Fake Tweet

By Kevin Eck 

KARK, the Little Rock, Ark. NBC affiliate, drew the ire of Cleveland fanboy, funnyman, and host of The Price is Right, Drew Carey after it sent out a tweet that looked like Carey was welcoming meteorologist Greg Dee to Cleveland. The tweet was fake and Carey noticed.

Here’s the KARK tweet.

The station put the word “satire” in brackets on the tweet. As we reported earlier, Dee is joining Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC the first week in February.

KARK news director Austin Kellerman told TVSpy nothing more has come of the dust up. He sad he thinks Carey enjoys getting a rise out of people, adding it was his most popular tweet of the day,  “Heck, this guy is in the WWE (pro wrestling) Hall of Fame.”
