Fox News’ Shepard Smith Rivals J. Lo Flub by Crediting Leonardo DiCaprio for the Mona Lisa (Video)

Anchor flubs artist’s name during live newscast

Whoops! Wrong Leo. Fox News anchor Shepard Smith has gone viral — for all the wrong reasons.

Smith flubbed a live report Thursday when he credited Oscar-nominated actor Leonardo DiCaprio with painting the Mona Lisa, rivaling his infamous 2002 Jennifer Lopez “curb job-blow job” flub.

Famed artist Leonardo da Vinci actually created the painting, of course, and viewers watching quickly caught the botched name and took to Twitter to mock the journalist.

The Mona Lisa portrait is the most famous, most visited and the most written about piece of art in the world. Da Vinci worked on the painting at the beginning of the 1500s and scientists are trying to discover the identity of the woman portrayed in the painting.

The painting now resides at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

Watch the video.

In 2002, he suggested that residents of Jennifer Lopez‘s old neighborhood in the Bronx would be more likely to “give her a curb job than a blow job” when he meant to say “block party.”
