This company's social media fail gave Twitter it's best laugh on Oscar night

Tension was already as thick as your mother's cornbread when the Oscars aired Sunday evening. The issue of diversity hovered like a dark cloud above Los Angeles. And yet even with this on everyone's mind, someone online still managed to prove our point: diversity is necessary.

This beauty company wrongfully identified Whoopi Goldberg for Oprah Winfrey.

Fortunately this act of stupidity was countered by a string of tweets from @KidFury wrongly naming white actors.

Fury made sure however to accurately name actors of color with pride.

The offender deleted the tweet and apologized, but the damage was done. Even @BlavityLive joined in on the fun.
