LOL! Last night the beauty website, Total Beauty made a huge mistake on Twitter…they thought Whoopi Goldberg was Oprah Winfrey! The company tweeted (and deleted), “We had no idea @Oprah was #tatted, and we love it. #Oscars.” Ummm it was Whoopi Goldberg. Ouch wrong woman. Oprah laughed off the mistake tweeting about the snafu.
The company has since apologized, “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. Using this #Oscars #SNAFU as. an opportunity to donate $10k to @whoopigoldberg & @oprah’s charity of choice. #ThatsNotOprah #WeMeanIt.”
On The View this morning Whoopi brushed off the mistake. “I feel pretty good if you’re comparing me to Oprah, saying I look like Oprah. That’s not a bad thing.It could’ve been a lot worse.” Goldberg added Total Beauty didn’t need to make the donation offer. “They don’t need to do that. Just know it happens. People make mistakes all the time. We’ve done it on the show.”
