Oops! Angry Bears fans tweet wrong Chris Conte

  • WTVF reporter Chris Conte says he received tweets after Chicago Bears game
  • Fans blamed the wrong Conte for loss in regular season finale

Although there may be benefits to sharing the same name as somebody famous, there is a downside too like when you get flooded with vicious tweets meant for the other guy.

Chris Conte is a free safety for the Chicago Bears. A Nashville, Tennessee, reporter shares the same name and after one particularly rough game, the WTVF anchor was on the receiving end of tweets from some pretty angry fans.

HLN's Susan Hendricks spoke to the reporter to get his reaction to the insulting tweets.
