Early versions of the New York Times highlighted a photograph Tiffany Haddish and Angela Bassett giving Rachel Brosnahan her Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy, with a caption in which Bassett is recognized as Omarosa Manigault Newman.

Eagle-eye readers were quick to point it out. “oh my god the New York Times mixed up Angela Bassett with Omarosa,” tweeted Buzzfeed reporter Julia Reinstein.
The Times immediately reacted to her, tweeting, “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.”
Agence France-Presse, the wire service initially in charge of the incorrect caption, has since fixed the mistake.
