Los Angeles News Station Trolls Cheating Astros With Funny Graphic During Live Broadcast

The Houston Astros' reputation plummeted like Wile E. Coyote falling off a cliff following their "remorseful" apology on Thursday morning. Houston isn't going to get much sympathy for, well, their lack of sympathy on the whole situation, especially the teams that were impacted in the sign-stealing controversy.

That includes the Los Angeles Dodgers, who fell to the Astros in the 2017 World Series. And to say Hollywood isn't forgiving of the guilty team is an understatement.

During a live broadcast of the Astros press conference, Los Angeles news station KTLA 5 trolled second baseman Jose Altuve with a savage graphic.

"Astros cheater." Yeah, don't expect a warm welcome in La La Land, boys.

The Dodgers knew full-well about the the numerous illegal ways the Astros stole their pitching signals. Whether through cameras in centerfield of Minute Maid Park, to banging on a trash can, the Dodgers, and others, knew something was fishy.

In fact, multiple Dodgers players reportedly warned the Washington Nationals of Houston's cheating ways ahead of this past year's World Series.

While Los Angeles let it be known of their disapproval of the Astros, they won't be the only city that shares the sentiment. Expect New York and Oakland to showcase similar disdain as their Hollywood counterparts.
