Remember that time Brian Williams was shot down in a helicopter in Iraq?

Well now neither does Williams, and he is apologizing publicly for the erroneous story which he has been telling for years after being called out by some of the troops who actually were in the attack.

Sorry dude, I don't remember you being on my aircraft, said Lance Reynolds on Facebook. I do remember you walking up about an hour after we had landed to ask me what had happened.

He brought up the story in a news segment Friday about a tribute to a retired soldier at a New York Rangers game.

But crew members told the military news site Stars & Stripes that this never happened, and Williams issued a retraction.

I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago, Williams said on NBC Nightly News Wednesday. I want to apologize.

The soldiers of the 159th Aviation Regiments Chinook which was actually shot down claim Williams was in a helicopter that arrived an hour later.

I don't know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another. Williams said.

He later elaborated and apologized further in a Facebook comment:

You are absolutely right and I was wrong. In fact, I spent much of the weekend thinking I'd gone crazy. I feel terrible about making this mistake, especially since I found my OWN WRITING about the incident from back in '08, and I was indeed on the Chinook behind the bird that took the RPG in the tail housing just above the ramp.

Now people on Twitter have started a hashtag to shame him called #BrianWilliamsMisremembers, in which he claims he was part of some other major historical events.

Do you want guac with your hate speech? Chipotle’s Twitter account was hacked over the weekend, posting lots of racial slurs and anti-government rants - most of which aren't fit to publish.

If you're struggling to place the name "James Blunt," he's the guy that sang that song everyone claimed to hate, yet still somehow made it to number one, "You're Beautiful." Dude doesn't seem to be doing much in the music scene these days, but maybe that's because he's too busy trolling on Twitter.

Dan May, a 24-year-old bizdev manager from Essex, England, was able to take advantage of publicity campaign by phone company O2 this month, in which they promised free pizza to office workers who downloaded their O2 Priority app. May never got his free pizza, and decided to let O2 know about it... complete with a threat to take his business to O2 competitor 3. Companies take bad publicity seriously, and they weren't about to let 3 hijack their own marketing campaign...
