Everyone’s heard by now of the Oscars photo-gate pitting Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg as “distant twins.” Total Beauty got it extremely wrong when they confused media moguls Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey as one entity.
While Whoopi Goldberg was on the red carpet at the Oscars, the beauty blog remarked excitedly about Oprah Winfrey’s ravishing “tattoos”.
“We had no idea that @Oprah was #tatted, and we love it. #Oscars,” stated Total Beauty
A huge backlash ensued and the editors apologized for the mix-up. Everyone makes mistakes, but do all African-Americans really look alike?
Whoopi took it in stride and made the nonchalant statement, “People make mistakes all the time. We do it on [The View] … it was an honest mistake. We both look good, Oprah and I!"
We love the fact that Whoopi can roll with the punches and embrace an honest mistake. Oprah, however took a different approach at the awkward snafu.
"We all love @whoopigoldberg but we don't all look alike Jeeeze!" stated Winfrey
Point well taken Oprah!
