Oprah Winfrey was just as disappointed as everyone else who noticed she was mistaken for Whoopi Goldberg at the 88th Academy Awards.

Blog Total Beauty made the cringe-worthy flub during red carpet arrivals Sunday evening. The site, which rarely focuses on products for people of color, posted a photo of Goldberg to their Twitter account with the caption, “We had no idea Oprah was tatted, and we love it. #Oscars.”

88th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

After major backlash from pretty much everyone, the tweet was deleted and the site released an apology:

Oprah and BFF Gayle King commented on the blunder with a hilarious Instagram post. The co-anchor of CBS This Morning posted a photo of Oprah and King’s daughter Kirby Bumpus’ reaction to the tweet.

The site took their apology a step further by agreeing to donate $10,000 to any charity of Goldberg and Winfrey’s choice.
