Tweeted And Deleted: Someone Thought Viola Davis Was Alfre Woodard at the Golden Globes

Earlier today Jan. 8, a tweet was posted on Issa Rae’s account claiming that she overheard someone mistakenly refer to Viola Davis as Alfre Woodward at the Golden Globes. The tweet read, “Overheard: Alfre Woodard looks amazing” … “Oh I didn’t see her. But Viola Davis looks great”… “Oh that’s who I meant. That’s who I meant.” Moments later the tweet was deleted from her account.

Both Alfre Woodard and Viola Davis are both beautiful black queens and award-winning actresses, but many fans are confused on how the anonymous person mixed up the identities of the two. One social media user wrote, “Different skin tones & different bodies of work too smh.”

Although Issa decided not to share the name of the person who made this faulty comment, people want to know “Who said it sis”?
