When a magazine as popular as Elle makes a mistake on a social media site as popular as Instagram, people are bound to notice in a hurry. And when someone from the magazine mistakenly captioned a photo of “The Walking Dead” actress Danai Gurira as Nene Leakes from “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”, the incident gained some negative attention pretty fast.
“#NeNeLeakes looking gorgeous in #alexanderwang and @hot diamonds #ellewitv”, read the caption, and followers immediately responded. They also took to Twitter to call out the perpetrator for making such a blatant mistake and demanded an apology. The caption has since been taken down and replaced with, “Apologies—clearly someone on our team needs glasses! The fabulous Danai Gurira looking stunning as ever!”
This is Nene Leakes.
