The New York Times should be as embarrassed as Wanda Smith after the early edition of the paper mixed up Angela Bassett and Omarosa Manigult during their Emmy coverage.

The NYT published a photo of Tiffany Haddish and Angela Bassett presenting Rachel Brosnahan with her Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy, but the caption identified Queen Angela as Omarosa.

Buzzfeed reporter Julia Reinstein spotted the egregious error and immediately blew up their spot!


The NYT issued an apology via Twitter writing:

We regret running an incorrect caption from a photo wire service in some early print editions. We will issue a correction in tomorrow’s paper.

Peep the tweet below:


Angela Bassett responded to the foolishness with this tweet:



New York Times gone have to do better than this!
