If you were on the internet at all yesterday, you’ll know that Total Beauty really mucked up during the red carpet arrivals and tagged a photo of Whoopi Goldberg as Oprah Winfrey.
The internet went BALLISTIC, with many people slamming the brand for not being able to tell the difference between two black women.

The memes came rolling in, and within the hour, Total Beauty had become the butt of all jokes.

Now, Oprah Winfrey has responded.
Her best friend Gayle uploaded a photo to Instagram showing Oprah’s reaction to the social media drama. Needless to say, she took it in good fun, but made her point, too!
