Earlier this week, Piers Morgan joined thousands of bullies in hounding a young woman off Twitter for asking if Wimbledon is always held in London. The infallible Morgan, of course, never says or does anything embarrassing.
Morgan was talking to LL Cool J about Whitney’s life during the July 6th episode of his CNN show and aired some generic footage of the singer to accompany the interview.
Problem is, the woman in the footage isn’t Whitney … and isn’t even a woman — it’s a celebrity drag queen named Ikenna Beney Amaechi.
Not so smug now, are we, Piers?

This is why I'm SMH @ CNN by the way: http://t.co/gYc590lF

One Twitter user simply couldn’t believe Morgan and CNN could make such a dumb mistake.
Oh, it’s true. Piers Morgan took to Twitter to admit his “Lola” moment.
