Talk about the ultimate fail!
While we were all glued to our TVs last Friday as authorities were on a hunt for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Dallas-Forth Worth’s Fox 4 saw a strange closed captioning blunder which mistook the suspect for Zooey Deschanel. Yeah, we’re talking New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel.

While the anchor did read the 19-year-olds name aloud correctly, the closed captioning on the screen read, “He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.” Wait, what?
No, it's not a "Very Special Episode" of New Girl. Just some bad closed captioning. Word of the misidentification got back to Zooey who tweeted out the photo, writing, "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!" Um yeah, couldn’t agree with you more on that one.
And just to sum everything up... Zooey and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: not the same person.
What do you think of the closed captioning fail?
