Welp, The Official Emmys Twitter Mistook Terrence Howard For Cuba Gooding Jr


Posted on

This is Cuba Gooding Jr. He's been acting in film and television since the '80s and has appeared in many major mainstream productions, including the iconic Jerry Maguire. More recently, he starred as the title character in The People Vs. OJ Simpson.

But on Sunday night during the Emmys red carpet, the official Television Academy's Twitter account got a bit confused and tagged Cuba in a tweet announcing that Terrence had arrived at the event.

Five minutes after posting the tweet, the Television Academy quietly corrected themselves by tagging the actual Terrence Howard in a new tweet.

Though the original tweet was still up when they tweeted the correction, it was eventually deleted.
