In case you missed “Conan” on TBS last week, and judging by the ratings you probably did, Conan O’Brien caused a minor stir after he Tweeted the following message to his fellow Boston Red Sox fans:
“Remember, Red Sox fans, they still have to live in Tampa.”
And because we’ve already seen that no sports fans in Tampa can take a simple, harmless joke, local shock jock Mike “Cowhead” Calta once again rallied his legions of mouth-breathing, stay-at-home Nickelback fans and demanded that O’Brien issue an official apology on his TV show.
WHPT-FM afternoon drive host Mike “Cowhead” Calta got his fans involved too.
An explicit hashtag resulted — #F–kCoco — along with a campaign to harass, (I mean, remind) the TBS star into taking back his insult.
Calta posted tweets with the number for O’Brien’s offices and the personal cellphone of the show’s publicist, Drew Shane.
Surprisingly, O’Brien caved to Cowhead’s demands and issued a full apology on last Thursday’s show.
