Jenna Bush Hager shed a few tears on Monday morning while apologizing for making one of the biggest flubs of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.

While interviewing nominee Pharrell Williams on the red carpet on Sunday afternoon, Jenna mashed up two of the biggest Black movies of the year: Hidden Figures and Fences.

The host accidentally called Hidden Figures “Hidden Fences” and instantly, Black Twitter exploded with comments suggesting the daughter of George W. Bush was racist. While recapping the night on NBC this morning, Hager told her colleagues Al Roker and Natalie Morales, “I had an error in the night, which I have to apologize for.”

She continued, “When I was interviewing the incomparable Pharrell, who I adore, I accidentally—in the electricity of the red carpet, which I have never done before—I called Hidden Figures ‘Hidden Fences.’ I have seen both movies. I thought they were both brilliant.”

An emotional Bush Hager added, “I have interviewed casts from both of the movies. If I offended people, I am deeply sorry. It was a mistake, because you all know, I am not perfect. I am authentic but a human. What I didn’t want to do is make anybody feel lesser than who they are. So, anyway, I hope … I apologized to both the cast, to Pharrell, but it was a mistake and I hope we can all move on.”

Roker defended Jenna and explained that “All of us who know you know your heart and know that was a mistake. Any broadcaster’s been in a live situation and you make a mistake. Look, I forgot Braveheart when I was interviewing MelGibson last night.”

Bush’s apology, however, was wildly different that Michael Keaton’s, who also called Hidden Figures “Hidden Fences” during the live broadcast. But Keaton’s apology was much more lackluster. Basically, he didn’t give AF.

TMZ cameras captured Keaton outside Madeo in West Hollywood after the show and when asked about the mishap, he sarcastically said, “I’m sorry, I apologize, I screwed it up.”

Keaton was then shocked to learn that the moment went viral. “I’m a horrible person,” Michael joked. “I’m going to sleep pretty well.”

Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’

Published

Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.

In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.

Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”

While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark. 

She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”

“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”

The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”

Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”

Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
