Beauty Website Thinks Whoopi Goldberg Is Oprah Winfrey on Oscars Red Carpet (Photo)

This probably isn’t going to help any of that #OscarsSoWhite tension

This year is not the Oscars to confuse two prominent black women.

Beauty website Total Beauty mistook Whoopi Goldberg for Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, tweeting: “We had no idea @Oprah was #tatted, and we love it. #Oscars.”

Under the Academy Award trophy emoji was a photo of “The View” host on the red carpet, showing off her shoulder tattoo in a strapless gown.

Here’s the gaffe:

The blunder didn’t go unnoticed by Oprah either, as her best friend Gayle King revealed.

“@Oprah & favorite daughter watching #Oscars & seeing @totalbeauty snafu! We all love @whoopigoldberg but we don’t all look alike Jeeeze!” she wrote on Instagram Sunday night.

The company apologized shortly after it removed the tweet. Below is the mea cupla for what the site called “our error.”
