Fox News published a segment commemorating the life of Aretha Franklin — with one glaring blunder.
The 11-minute segment featured clips and photos from Franklin’s illustrious career, but the mistake came 3 minutes and 24 seconds in when they featured a photo of Patti LaBelle.
Fox News tweeted out the segment, which remained up early Thursday evening.
Naturally, Twitter users were rational and understanding in their response. (Just kidding, they weren’t!)

Our coverage of Aretha Franklin:
Fox News apologized to Franklin’s family and friends for the mistake in a press release.
"Our intention was to honor the icon using a secondary image of her performing with Patti LaBelle in the full screen graphic, but the image of Ms. Franklin was obscured in that process, which we deeply regret," said Jessica Santostefano, media desk vice president at Fox News.
