WDSU (New Orleans) Anchor Scott Walker gets a long of hate Tweets, but he's ok with it.
Most of the hate is not intended for him, but the other Scott Walker.
As Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker gears up for a White House run, Anchor Scott Walker has been getting more tweets that are not meant for him.
“Don’t oppress women with malicious ultrasounds,” the woman from Florida pleaded with him on Twitter. “Focus on jobs, not vaginas. Please!”
Walker, responded with what has become a frequent hashtag to misguided Twitter haters: #WrongScottWalker.
Walker — who anchors WDSU News at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. on weeknights — is amused about the coincidence of sharing a name with someone who is getting a lot of buzz as potential Republican presidential candidate. But he says the confusion isn’t new.
“It’s been going on for years now,” Walker said with a laugh in an phone interview with The Daily Caller.
When the Wisconsin governor, a foe of public sector unions, was facing a tense recall election in 2012, the newscaster said the tweets poured in.
“I just don’t understand how people confuse the two,” Walker, the anchor, said. “If I send a tweet, I know who I’m sending it to. He is @ScottWalker, I’m @ScottWalker6. I don’t look like the guy. I’m a news anchor in New Orleans. He’s the governor of Wisconsin.”
Don't look alike? Maybe this picture of the two will prove otherwise:
