There are plenty of celebs in Hollywood that look like they could be long lost siblings, but Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey aren’t exactly sisters. That didn’t stop makeup brand Total Beauty from confusing the two while commenting on Oprah’s Whoopi’s ink on the Oscars red carpet.

They sent out a tweet as celebs made their Academy Awards arrivals writing, “We had no idea Oprah was #tatted, and we love it.” Just one problem – that’s not Oprah. Oprah wasn’t even at the event.

Even Oprah Winfrey took to Instagram to express her confusion (and best “Huh?!” face).

Mistakes happen, especially while commenting or covering a live event, and Total Beauty took to Twitter to apologize for their oopsie posting, “We’d like to apologize to Oprah and Whoopi, as well as everyone we’ve offended. It was our error, and there are no excuses. We’re sorry.”

They also said they would donate $10 thousand to Whoopi’s and Oprah’s charities of choice. I think we can all accept their apology, right?
