KXAS 5 removes offensive post

NBC 5 KXAS DFW creates controversy with Facebook post

KXAX 5 in Dallas - Fort Worth caused a bit of controversy with a post on Facebook earlier this morning. Here is a screen capture via a friend of mine in DFW:


The station later removed the post and then posted the following, "We have removed the previous post to our Facebook page that many of you felt was insensitive, we apologize for the error in judgment."

The reactions are mixed in the post's comments sections. There are those that are offended and then those that say get over it.

What do you think? Was the station just trying to get attention by being provocative? Did the post go over the line? Or has society gone so politically correct that almost anything pushing the envelope is offensive now?

(Thanks Chris S.)
