Whoopi Goldberg Got Mistaken For Oprah At The Oscars And Oh No No No

Welp, that didn’t take long.

On a day where the focus on the #OscarsSoWhite issue is arguably at its absolute peak, and where Chris Rock is scheduled to host the ceremony, the absolute last thing you’d want to do is make a monumental race-related fuck up during the Red Carpet arrivals.
And, look. Cards on the table here, we know that covering the absolute storm of activity that’s currently going on surrounding Hollywood‘s night of nights is a tough job at the best of times. Believe us. We are absolutely flat fucking chat here in the PEDESTRIAN.TV offices this morning.
But of course you have to be mindful when being quick-to-the-punch, particularly when it comes to social media.
Because if you don’t something like this might happen and oh no.
Oh NO.

Oh no no no no no no no no no.

The tweet from Total Beauty may have gotten swiftly deleted, but the Internet never forgets, and never forgives.
And thus the ever-loving piss has been taken.

The Internet: Snidely laughing through other people’s supreme fuck ups since 1986.

It’s a long day at the Oscars grind, friends. Buckle up.
UPDATE: Total Beauty has issued an apology for the slip-up on Twitter.
Oh look! A horse that’s already bolted!
