WTTG-TV’s entertainment reporter has been getting mean social media posts from people who think he’s former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.  The reason is that he’s also named Kevin McCarthy.

WTTG’s McCarthy said he’s been getting nasty messages on X, formerly known as Twitter, as far back as 2017. According to TV Spy, he says “they tend to get nastier and even more disturbing when the politician is in the news.

“When Speaker McCarthy was voted out of the job, someone called WTTG McCarthy a “POS traitor” on social media.”

TV Spy also reported that WTTG’s McCarthy said “he redirects the flames by sending a sarcastic response involving a movie-related tidbit in return.

““Wait, is this because I saw Oppenheimer 8 times in theaters? Listen, when Christopher Nolan releases a new film, it feels like an event that I want to experience over and over again,” he responded to one. “Saw it in 70mm, 70mm IMAX, 1.90 digital IMAX and 1.43 digital IMAX. I was busy, sorry.”

“The station said the the writer often apologies for their mistake. Sometimes though, the tweets get deleted.”
