Jenna Bush Hager had a major foot-in-mouth moment on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday night. The journalist came under fire from fans for mashing up “Hidden Figures” and “Fences” into one title while talking to Pharrell Williams. The flub was the talk of Twitter, with some suggesting that the mixup was racially motivated.

Hager returned to her duties as a correspondent on “Today” Monday morning, at which point she addressed the controversy at the 74th annual award show. She appeared apologetic, explaining that she never intended to offend anyone. Hager assured fans it was an honest mistake.

Hager wasn’t the only one to mix up the two films. Michael Keaton took the stage during the 2017 Golden Globes to present the award for best supporting actress. When calling out the nominees, which included “Hidden Figures” star Octavia Spencer, Keaton also called the film “Hidden Fences.”

The incorrect film title quickly became a hashtag. Users of the social media site seized the opportunity to share their own movie/TV mashups. Others used the hashtag to share experiences in having been confused with other black people in predominantly white settings.

Spencer is the only “Hidden Figures” star to address the controversy at this time. In the wee hours of the morning on Monday, the actress joked that “Hidden Fences” wouldn’t be visible. Neither she nor her co-stars have said anything more about it.
