Whoopi Goldberg Was Mistaken For Oprah Winfrey At Oscars
Did someone say #OscarsSoWhite?
The race was on for someone to screw up the Red Carpet arrivals and they did in a big way.
The legendary Whoopi Goldberg was mistaken for Oprah Winfrey and basically proves the whole point of the "Oscars So White" hashtag.
Total Beauty tweeted from their account: "We had no idea @Oprah was #tatted, and we love it #Oscars."
It didn't take long for the account to be called out with some harsh backlash. It was swiftly deleted but not before it was screenshotted. Remember kids, the internet is forever.
