Since debuting in February, Pam & Tommy has been critically acclaimed for its depiction of the 1990s true story of actress Pamela Anderson (played by Lily James) and rocker Tommy Lee’s (Sebastian Stan) infamous sex tape story.
What has not been acclaimed, however, is the show’s miscue of basic Canadian geography.
As pointed out by novelist and writer Christine Estima on Twitter, the sixth episode of the Hulu miniseries, which aired on Disney+ in Canada on February 23, features a Labatt Brewery business card mistaking Toronto, Ontario, for some mythical land called Montreal, Ontario.

Pam & Tommy follows the now-divorced couple as they scramble to recover stolen sex tape footage that sparked a media frenzy in the late ’90s and is widely considered the internet’s first viral video.

Other fans of the show were quick to point out episode six’s error, calling out Hulu and Disney+ for the blunder.
Some Twitter users jokingly called on Vancouver’s Seth Rogen, who co-stars and executive produces the show, to lose his Canadian citizenship.
In actual fact, the Labatt brewery has been headquartered out of Toronto, Ontario, since 1847.
Come on, Hollywood!

Who gave the approval of the Labatt business card to say he was headquartered in Montreal, Ontario ??

Hey @disneyplus, get some new fact checkers for Pam and Tommy. Montreal is in Quebec, not Ontario.
Not every major Canadian city is in Ontario. The M5V area code is used in Toronto as well… pic.twitter.com/IUgWr1l7hE
