FOX News Mistake Not Setting Well with Aretha Fans

DETROIT, MI – It was no secret that Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle had a frosty friendship. Aretha and Patti never performed together. So when Fox News superimposed an image of Patti LaBelle in a tribute to Aretha, fans on social media made sure that they were heard and not happy about it.

Phil Lewis, a Detroit native and a front page editor with the Huffington Post, posted the following on Twitter:

FOX later apologized for the mistake They blamed it on an editing error.  Some on social media even saying that FOX News was being racist.

Fox News is as racist as the president they support. https://thebea.st/2BhLK1x?source=twitter&via=desktop  via @thedailybeast

With someone who was bigger than life like Aretha was, you would think that FOX News and their editors would have put in place a means to catch errors like the one that was made.  Especially when the mistake coincides with that persons death.
