Oops!

Zooey Deschanel was mistakenly ID’d as Boston Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by closed captioning on a local news broadcast on Friday.

During the harrowing manhunt, Peter Ogburn, a contributor for MediaBistro, captured Tsarnaev being wrongly referred to as the “New Girl” star by the subtitling service during a news broadcast in Dallas.

The gaffe was retweeted by Joel McHale, and then by Deschanel herself, who wrote, “Whoa! Epic closed captioning fail!”
