Chicago News Station Labels Metta World Peace ‘Lakers Idiot’

Pictures have surfaced from an ABC affiliate based in Chicago that aired an interview with Metta World Peace back on May 14. However, the title given to World Peace on the screen was anything but flattering.

According to Deadspin, and verified in the image below, during WLS’s 5 p.m. newscast, World Peace was labeled “Lakers idiot” on television.

Whether it a was a joke or not, I’m sure World Peace will be anything but flattered. Regardless of your personal opinions on an individual, labeling him an idiot on live television probably isn’t the most professional approach to the situation.
