Tomorrow’s KSR will be live from the Manchester Music Festival in Clay County, where a welcome sign got everyone a little riled up today.

Organizers for the festival put up a sign welcoming “MMF’ers,” aka “Manchester Music Festivalers” to the event; however, the wordplay rubbed many the wrong way, so the sign was taken down. Boooooo.

A social media fire storm has broke out over the Manchester Music Festival sign on the Main Stage. Is it a catchy…

Personally, I think it’s hilarious. Why so serious, MMF’ers? Come on out to Morgan’s Professional Pharmacy from 10-noon and have a MMF’n good time.

UPDATE: According to WYMT, there was such an outpouring of support for the sign after the initial backlash that organizers decided not to take it down after all; in fact, they’re making t-shirts because it received so much attention. (If they’re reading, I’ll take one.)

    I dont really get the word play. MMFers? Mother u know what i guess. Wouldnt that just be MFers? Idk. Why get upset tho? Its hard to put that together. I wouldnt have even noticed till it was pointed out.
