A local news station in Chicago aimed to wish everyone a very happy Yom Kippur but failed miserably when they displayed a very offensive graphic during their news segment about the Jewish holiday.
If the graphic they used looks vaguely familiar, you're correct. It happens to be the same yellow Star of David patch Nazis forced Jewish people to wear during the Holocaust in the 1940s. The patch has the word "Jude" written in Hebrew-style lettering.
As soon as WGN became aware of the inadvertent use of the offensive graphic, they issued a press release and posted to their Facebook page to apologize to their viewers.

Stay tuned. There might be job opening available at WGN in the graphics department.
Sooo.. someone's getting fired at WGN... pic.twitter.com/SrSt8arVCa— Mikaela (@mikaelajannae) September 23, 2015
