New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel Mistakenly ID’d as Boston Bombing Suspect
Amid all of the reporting faux pas surrounding the Boston bombing, Zooey Deschanel is that latest casualty in the journalistic conundrum.
Zooey, who stars as Jess on Fox's New Girl, was mistakenly ID's as one of the suspects in the Boston bombing: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
On a local news broadcast in Dallas on Friday, the quirky actress' name appeared in lieu of the suspect, with "19-year-old" and "male" as her descriptors. Oops!
The tweet originated from Peter Ogburn, a contributor for MediaBistro and was later retweeted by Community's Joel McHale.
When the actress noticed the tweet, she responded simply and eloquently with: "WHOA! Epic closed captioning fail!"
You've got that right, Zooey.
