Last night, Yahoo rushed to post news of "The Office" star John Krasinski's addition to the "Arrested Development" cast for its upcoming Netflix run. Instead, Yahoo ended up laying bare its prejudices against Johns the world over.
In lieu of a photo of Krasinski—a 33-year-old Caucasian native of Newton, Massachusetts—Yahoo somehow managed to use a pic of John Singleton, the 45-year-old African American film director and favorite son of South L.A.—both in the story itself, pictured above, and in the home-page teaser below:
All Hollywood Johns look the same, apparently.
Yahoo fixed the mistake on its story sometime around 1 a.m., though you can still find a "John Krasinski" photo page with Singleton's mug and about 20 sardonic comments.
No word yet on whether Singleton was disappointed to hear he wouldn't be joining the Bluth family.
