Update (September 18, 2018):

Angela Bassett has responded to the Times' error, the Huffington Post reports.

While everyone on Twitter sat perched on the edge of their seats ready to see a Bernadine Harris response, Bassett chose something a little more out of Queen Ramonda's playbook.

In a simple tweet, Bassett told those offended on her behalf, "It's handled," and added, "Hey Everybody, no worries! xoAng."

Original:

In today’s “they all look alike” news, The New York Times mistook Angela Bassett for Omarosa Manigualt-Newman.

The paper displayed a few pictures from the ceremony in their print edition and made the grave error in a caption.


The picture shows Bassett and Tiffany Haddish presenting an award to Rachel Brosnahan. They credited Haddish and Brosnahan correctly but somehow, they got the ageless goddess and Newman mixed up.

The error was pointed out by a few eagle-eyed Twitter folks and the Times is getting dragged.




The paper’s PR team apologized for the mistake on Twitter.



“We regret running an incorrect caption from a photo wire service in some early print editions. We will issue a correction in tomorrow's paper,” the publication wrote.

Mhm. Just don’t do that s**t again.
