Total Beauty Confuses Whoopi Goldberg For Oprah Winfrey At The Oscars

During last night’s ever so white Oscars, Twitter users were appalled to read a tweet from a beauty website that confused two black celebs.

While the red carpet was ongoing, Total Beauty tweeted that they were surprised to see that Oprah Winfrey had tattoos.

Unfortunately for them however Oprah turned out to be Whoopi Goldberg—who looks nothing like the media mogul.


Total Beauty has since apologized for the gaffe…

and they’re asking fans to donate $10,000 to Oprah’s charity. Wait, what?!

They’re now of course getting relentlessly roasted.

But what did Oprah herself think about the slip-up????

Hit the flip for her reaction.

According to Oprah’s bestie Gayle, she took the mixup in stride but she added that we all DON’T lookalike.

Get it together white people.
