Angela Bassett Gets Mistaken for Omarosa at the Emmys

Both are beautiful, dark-skinned, dark brown hair, have impeccable diction, with gorgeously curvaceous bodies.  Besides that, I’m mystified that the New York Times could possibly mistake Omarosa Manigault-Newman with Angela Bassett.

This from People magazine online:

On Tuesday morning, the newspaper published a photo of Rachel Brosnahanreceiving her award for lead actress in a comedy series at the Emmy Award’son Monday evening. The award was presented by Tiffany Haddish and Bassett, who were also both featured in the shot.

The only problem? In the NYT caption, Bassett, 60, was wrongly identified as former White House aide Manigault-Newman, 44.

To make matters worse, the Apprentice-contestant-turned-Trump-aide wasn’t even present at Monday night’s ceremony.

The outlet quickly addressed the mistake in a tweet on Tuesday, claiming the error was due to a “photo wire service in some early print editions.” They also noted that a correction would be issued in Wednesday’s paper.

Bassett handled the mixup with typical Pink Pill style and grace. “Hey Everybody, no worries!” she wrote, alongside a meme of Kerry Washington in Scandal that reads “It’s handled.”
