Times Union – An on-air host for WPYX-106.5 FM invited a local television reporter to his hot tub in a tweet, apologizing in advance for the “creep factor” in the since-deleted tweet.
“I apologize in advance for this tweets creep factor, we’re having one of our annual #showsummits in my hottub fri at 12:30! May be disgusting accidental nudity but you’re invited as our guest to get warm and brainstorm 2019 w/us,” Laursen wrote.
Hey Chris, I know you’re reading this. Have you ever heard of “DMs”? Direct messages, they’re this great invention that let you shoot your shot discreetly and directly. This gives her the chance to respectfully accept, or in this instance, definitely decline your request to be flashed by you in your hottub.
Listen, we’ve all had a crush on a news reporter at some point or another (right?), and there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s best to keep the “creep factor” to yourself before you get dragged across the local interwebs and becoming forever archived as “that guy.”
Looks like Quinn wised up and deleted this tweet, but screen grabs are forever. He also blocked me for calling him out on the disgusting nature of the tweet. Unfortunately not the first, and probably not the last time it will happen. #metoo pic.twitter.com/qebx4A5ciX— Ayla Ferrone (@AylaFerrone) January 17, 2019
As Lexi’s fellow reporter pointed out, screenshots are forever, and now you’ve got to ride it out with your true colors in full bloom (not that your Hooters girl segment or goggling over your’s co-host wife’s breast implants didn’t do so already). And although you apologized, you really gotta work on your aim before you ever shoot again. It’s 2019, bro.†
