Zooey Deschanel falsely named as bomb suspect
Actress Zooey Deschanel has been inadvertently implicated in the Boston Marathon bombings after a news station incorrectly identified the New Girl star as a suspect
Fox News affiliate, Fox 4, displayed a photo of 19-year-old terror suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev yesterday along with a caption that read "Marathon bombing. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel", E! Online reports.
The TV star was quickly made aware of the error and tweeted a response.
"Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!," Deschanel wrote, linking to a photo of the TV station’s error.
Twitter user Peter Ogburn who informed Deschanel of the incriminating caption then jokingly tweeted the 33-year-old saying “So, you’re saying it wasn’t you?”
Tsarnaev has since been arrested and is currently in hospital under police guard.
