Can You Tell What’s Wrong With this Photo?



Oprah or Not Oprah - August 2014 - 01
This photo and caption posted by a mum on Instagram has gone viral.

Can you tell what is wrong with it?

It’s times like this, we recall why Samuel L. Jackson lashed out at a reporter on national television, saying “We do not all look alike.” Samuel was called Laurence Fishburne.

When the photo started to circulate online, with some accusing the mum of thinking all black people look the same, she defended the post;

“OK so everyone has to know the story real quick before judging. My son is one of THE most amazing men you will meet. I was not on this flight. My son has been flying coastal for years by himself. He called me all excited from his layover saying he just met Oprah.

I was skeptical but he told me the story this lady told him. Of course even though I didn’t think it looked like her I was like why would a pilot and flight staff lie to a young kid? I quickly took the photo down once I realized they had pulled a fast one on him and I’m quite sure it was all in jest and did not mean to cause harm, however I do think it’s not okay to impersonate someone and tell them you are doing an article for O mag and that they could come up front to take a pick with you. smh.

We just laugh it off now as it was an honest mistake imposed on him by someone who thought it funny to prank a kid.”

    LOL. First of all BN, there’s nothing wrong with the photo, just the original caption :). And what’s the mother talking about? The woman in the photo DOES look like Oprah.

    To be honest, the reverse case happens. After a particularly embarrassing experience, I have learnt to look very very closely or just keep mum if I meet someone with a familiar face and I’m not 100% sure.

    All races look alike to other race. This has been proven over and over again, has it not happened to you? You will be watching Chineses film and you will be wondering; how they tell themself apart from eachother, even some american films especially series, I get to season two before i can tell them apart sometimes. And how many times would we see a japaneses and say he’s chinese. There is nothing wrong he’s white and he will always see all blacks as the same, same for blacks. it just another celebrity look alike on wendy show
