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.

Jimmy Kimmel has released his latest batch of mean tweets as another all-music edition just in time for the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday.

In this new video, Wiz Khalifa finds out he looks like “a homeless woman,” Drake finds out he looks like Lord Voldemort and Haim takes their hate mail as a compliment.

The bit also includes – among others – Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and 5 Seconds Of Summer.

“This could be the biggest snowstorm in the history of this city,” said New York Mayor Bill de Blasioat a press conference on Sunday about Winter Storm Juno, or what is now being collectively referred to online as “Snowmageddon 2015.”

The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have all declared state of emergencies as more than 2 feet of snow is expected to dump in the area.

While you hunker down and get started on that first loaf, check out some of the best reactions to the storm so far on Twitter.

Fail or Win?

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office in Florida bought some fancy new rugs recently, but they had to remove them because of a little spelling mistake.

Within the crest the text reads "In Dog We Trust" instead of "In God We Trust."

The mistake went unnoticed for several weeks before they realized it.

Since news of the photo spread online people have taken to the sheriff's office Facebook page asking that they auction it off and donate the money to an animal charity or place it in the K9 unit instead.

Or they could just appoint this guy as the new sheriff.

Social media accounts belonging the United States Central Command were hacked on Monday by a group claiming to be ISIS sympathizers.

The attack comes at the same time that President Obama is promoting his plans to bolster cybersecurity.

The hackers posted a number of eerie warnings on the Twitter account @CENTCOM, which has since been suspended. They changed the profile images to those in the photo above with the words "CyberCaliphate" and "I love you ISIS."

"AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS," they wrote. They also posted spreadsheets with contact info for retired U.S. army generals and maps of North Korea and China. Nothing posted was classified, however, and it is all available publicly online.

Their YouTube account was compromised as well with two new videos added called "Flames of War ISIS Video" and "O Soldiers of Truth Go Forth," according to Reuters.

"We can confirm that the U.S. Central Command's Twitter and YouTube accounts were compromised earlier today. We are taking appropriate measures to address the matter," Centcom said in a statement.

Another tweet linked to the following message on Pastbin:

"While the US and its satellites kill our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan we broke into your networks and personal devices and know everything about you," they wrote. "You'll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now. We won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children. U.S. soldiers! We're watching you!"
