Yikes! Oprah Winfrey Responds to Whoopi Goldberg Getting Mistaken for Her at 2016 Oscars
So…apparently there is someone in the world who doesn’t know what Oprah Winfrey looks like!
Prior to the 88th Academy Awards, Whoopi Goldberg walked the red carpet looking stunning in a black dress, showing off her shoulder tattoo. However, beauty blog Total Beauty made a colossal mistake, believing the women to be media mogul Oprah Winfrey.
The beloved actress and former talk show host responded to the misunderstanding via her friend Gayle King’s Instagram account. The picture features Winfrey alongside King’s daughter, both looking flabbergasted with Total Beauty’s flub.
Thankfully, the beauty blog was quick to offer an apology for their mistake:
We’d like to apologize to Oprah and Whoopi, as well as everyone we’ve offended. It was our error, and there are no excuses. We’re sorry.

Hopefully no one lost their job after this!
