FOX news mistakes Patti LaBelle for Aretha Franklin




-While trying to pay homage to the Queen of Soul they used an image of Patti LaBelle in the background of the title card that shows "Aretha" performing on the stage.

-Faux News released a statement apologizing for their error and stating "intention was to honor the icon using a secondary image of her performing with Patti LaBelle in the full screen graphic, but the image of Ms. Franklin was obscured in that process, which we deeply regret"

-Only problem? While Aretha and Patti performed at the same event in the photo, they never performed together on stage nor is Aretha anywhere to be found in the photo they used.
