Looks like #OscarsSoWhite is now #OscarsNotSoBright.

In the midst of a national conversation about movie industry racism, the website Total Beauty identified Whoopi Goldberg as Oprah Winfrey – a mistake so bad that even Winfrey took to social media to mock it.

The beauty site made the mistake in a caption under a tweeted photo of Goldberg on the Oscars red carpet that read, “We had no idea Oprah was tatted, and we love it. #Oscars.”

THE 10 BEST OSCAR MOMENTS 

Winfrey’s best pal Gayle King promptly uploaded a pic on Instagram of Winfrey sitting next to King’s daughter Kirby Bumpus. The talk show titan is seen holding up the hare-brained tweet with a puzzled expression on her face while Bumpus has her mouth open in apparent shock.

The company quickly issued an apology writing: “We’d like to apologize to Oprah and Whoopi, as well as everyone we’ve offended. It was our error, and there are no excuses. We’re sorry.”

It was too late: The offending tweet had already inspired its own hashtag #ThatsNotOprah. Even actress Holly Robinson Peete weighed in tweeting, “Come on @TotalBeauty There are only a few of us there smh.”
