Oprah Reacts To Being Confused With Whoopi Goldberg On The Oscars Red Carpet


About that time time a beauty website confused Whoopi Goldberg with Oprah Winfrey

During Sunday night’s (Feb. 28) 88th Academy Awards, TotalBeauty.com made a the most awkward of mistakes by mixing up the host of The View with the media maven. Taking note of Goldberg’s massive shoulder tattoo, the site attempted to give a compliment–only it was to the wrong woman. “We had no idea @Oprah was #tatted, and we love it. #Oscars,” the Twitter snafu read.

Taking back to Twitter to apologize for the mix-up, Total Beauty said sorry to anyone who was offended. They also announced that they were offering to donate $10,000 to the charities of Goldberg and Winfrey’s choice:

But before the mistake would blow over, Winfrey offered a reaction to mistake, by way of Gayle King’s Instagram page. Posing in a photo while pointing to Goldberg’s red carpet look, King was sure to make one thing clear to Total Beauty: “we don’t all look alike.” “@Oprah & favorite daughter watching #Oscars & seeing @totalbeautyeditors snafu! We all love @whoopigoldberg but we don’t all look alike Jeeeze!,” the caption read.
