Angela Bassett Gets Mistaken for Omarosa & Black Twitter is Appalled

Angela Bassett looked stunning during Monday’s Emmy Awards, presenting alongside funny lady Tiffany Haddish and stealing our hearts all night.

In an early version of Tuesday’s New York Times print publication, the newspaper wrongly identified Bassett as former Trump adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman.

The Times tweeted a response to the error immediately, telling followers they “will issue a correction in tomorrow’s paper.”

That wasn’t enough to stop Twitter from hanging them out the dry for the mistake. Check out responses to the blunder below.

Bassett herself responded as well, simply tweeting “No worries,” and including a GIF of Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) saying her signature phrase, “It’s handled.”
