The New York Times Thinks Angela Bassett is Omarosa

The New York Times accidently identified actress Angela Bassett for Omarosa Manigault Newman

Tuesday's print edition of The New York Times incorrectly identifies a picture of actress Angela Bassett-the Golden Globe victor and Academy Award nominee who has played Tina Turner and Betty Shabazz-as Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former Trump employee who has played herself on both network television and in real life.

The New York Times put an embarrassing error in print Tuesday in their 2018 Emmys coverage.

The mistake was in a photo caption in which "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star Rachel Brosnahan accepted the best actress in a comedy at the 70th Annual Emmy Awards on Monday from presenters Bassett and Tiffany Haddish - but Bassett was identified as the former Trump staffer. And furthermore, why would Omarosa, who is pretty much a universal pariah at this point, even be invited to the Emmys in the first place, much less allowed to present an award? "We will issue a correction in tomorrow's paper".

Agence France-Presse, the wire service originally responsible for the incorrect caption, has since fixed the mistake.

Of course, that didn't stop the internet from responding to the perceived slight at Bassett.

Already, the photo agency has corrected the captions and included the following statement: "The erroneous mention [s] appearing in the metadata of this photo by Robyn BECK has been modified in AFP systems in the following manner: [Angela Bassett] instead of [Omarosa Manigault Newman]".
