The rainbow movement even spread to Facebook, with users around the world joining in the online pride party.


Arkansas NBC affiliate KARK4 News was not one of them. The station uses the famous NBC peacock logo as its Facebook profile picture.

The peacock made its debut on NBC way back in 1956 to showcase color television. According to the website Famous Logos, "the NBC logo is undoubtedly one of the world’s most iconic and instantly recognizable logos."

Whoever manages the KARK4 Facebook page deserves a medal for their restrained response.
