"Wait... are you sure that's a picture of Nelson Mandela?" "Close enough." http://t.co/egNWKUxOgD— Jim Harper (@NewsroomJim) December 6, 2013
Shameful. This news station put up a picture of A Rod instead of Mandela. http://t.co/wlDgGYz9zs— ksamshow (@ksamshow) December 6, 2013
As if the association between Mandela and A-Rod wasn’t bizarre enough, there was also this nugget from late-night television on the Arsenio Hall show. Singer R. Kelly performed a tribute song he had apparently written for Mandela and performed for him previously during a visit to his home.
