This afternoon, the Bay Area's Channel 2 news made an embarrassing mistake while reporting the names of people they thought were pilots on the Asiana flight that recently crashed.

The station says the names were confirmed to them this morning by NTSB. And when typed out on the teleprompter, the anchor and the station didn't realize just how racist the "names" (which were not, in fact, those of the pilots), sounded.

According to Channel 2, the crew was comprised of:

Captain Sun Ting Wong
Wi Tu Lo
Ho Lee Fuk
Bang Ding Ow
