Zooey Deschanel got the surprise of her life last Friday when she found out a Fox network affiliate, KDFW, a caption error identified her as a Boston Bombing suspect, reports the New York Daily News.
The erroneous onscreen text sent out to the Dallas-Fort Worth area read:
“Marathon Bombing. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.”
When the New Girl star got word of the blunder, she expressed her shock on Twitter.

Executives of the TV captioning service, Caption Solutions, reached out to Deschanel following the gaff and apologized for the mistake. Company president Kala J. Patterson said in a statement on Tuesday that those involved “sincerely apologize for this error.”
The name the TV service meant to put was “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.”
