Anchor Freaks Out Viewers by Leaving Ashes on His Forehead

WSBT anchor Rick Schutt left viewers of the South Bend CBS affiliate wondering what was wrong with him after leaving the traces of Ash Wednesday on his forehead.

Schutt took to his facebook page to assure viewers he was OK saying, “It’s Ash Wednesday and yes I went to Mass tonight. Some viewers were wondering what was on my forward. Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent…”

During Ash Wednesday Mass, Catholics have ashes rubbed on their foreheads in the sign of a cross to remind them of their mortality. Some choose to wash the ashes off.  Some leave them on.

Schutt may have run into his phone’s auto-correct function by writing “forward” instead of “forehead.”
