Zooey Deschanel caption confuses actress for Boston bombing suspect

April 21 (UPI) -- In a week of high-profile reporting mistakes, a local Fox station may have made the funniest, and most harmless.

During the final standoff between police and 19-year-old Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the closed captioner for Fox 4 Dallas-Fort Worth substituted Tsarnaev's for that of actress Zooey Deschanel.

To be fair, no one is sure how to pronounce Zooey Deschanel's name either.

Grabbed by radio producer Peter Ogburn, the screenshot of the error rocketed around the social media sphere as a welcome moment of levity.


Deschanel responded, calling the error an "epic closed captioning FAIL!"
