On Thursday, August 16, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin reportedly passed away in her home. She had been suffering from pancreatic cancer, and both her family and the music industry at large are mourning her loss as a titan of vocal performance.

Fox News broadcast a memorial segment in remembrance of Franklin, but they happened to overlook one detail: at a key moment in the video, alongside the text "Aretha Franklin, singer, 1942 ― 2018," a picture appears of a woman singing. Upon closer examination, it's obvious the singer is not Franklin, but is, in fact, fellow superstar Patti LaBelle.

The photo of LaBelle appears to have been taken during LaBelle's 2014 performance of "Over The Rainbow" at the White House for President Obama.


Twitter had a few words to say about Fox News mixing up these two notable and very recognizable singers.



People threw healthy doses of snark in the news network's direction.



Many on social media were simply shocked that Fox could make such a glaring oversight.




Others were not as surprised.


After all, it was another big day at Fox News!



The network attempted to explain their mistake, but their excuse was a bit disingenuous.


The mistake is especially cringe-worthy considering the contentious relationship LaBelle and Franklin shared. After Franklin's passing, however, LaBelle appeared to let bygones be bygones with a message on Twitter:


One can only hope LaBelle, Franklin, and viewers will extend the same forgiveness towards you, Fox News.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
