Before the 2016 Oscars began, fashion blog Total Beauty made the unfortunate attempt to weigh in on the Oscars went horribly wrong when it confused an image of Whoopi Goldberg for Oprah Winfrey. The website Total Beauty tweeted a photo of Goldberg showing off her massive shoulder tattoo with the caption: "We had no idea Oprah was tatted, and we love it." The website responded,. "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."
The tweet was eventually deleted, but nevertheless made its way to Oprah herself. Best friend Gayle King posted a photo of the media mogul's reaction on Instagram, writing, "@Oprah & favorite daughter watching #Oscars & seeing @totalbeauty snafu! We all love @whoopigoldberg but we don't all look alike Jeeeze!"
