In Winnipeg to shoot the Casey Anthony telemovie, the Parks and Recreation actor posted a tweet that ended with the hashtag #Trappedinahellhole.
“The local affiliate is interrupting the 4th quarter of the #NBAFinals to show city council election results!!! #Trappedinahellhole,” Lowe tweeted.
Several local residents fired back, calling Lowe a “jerk, a schmuck and other names,” according to the Edmonton Journal.
However, it has since been noted that there were no municipal elections in Manitoba on Tuesday, meaning the coverage Lowe was watching was probably based south of the border in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
