People On Twitter Still Don't Get John Lewis Isn't John Lewis

Not content with confusing him for a department store, people are now crediting him with the civil rights movement. He's taking it with good humor.

What a difference a day makes.

On Friday we looked at the misfortune of John Lewis, just a normal guy from Blacksburg, Virginia, who was mistaken for John Lewis, the UK-based retail store.

And because of that, people are getting confused again.

We need a march through the south like @johnlewis said, the gerrymandered south. March & register all brothers & sisters!

John Lewis supports equality, even though people aren't talking about him.

@joesegal I agree completely, though I think you may have been referring to the wonderful civil rights leader. March on!

@DeHol I agree that the recent assault on voting rights is horrific, though I think you may have been referring to the civil rights leader.

Even Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League, the country's biggest civil rights group, got the two Johns confused.

Through it all, John Lewis of Virginia has been sanguine about the mistaken identity.

@tom7p It's all good. I'm now being mistaken for the civil rights leader, too. I wish I had @repjohnlewis class and @johnlewisretail money.
