CBS News Congratulated Deceased Actor Michael Jeter on His Last All-Star Game

By 07.16.14


Some poor bastard working on CBS News’ social media team made a pretty hilarious mistake last night during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

Somehow the 140-character author confused future Hall of Fame baseball player Derek Jeter with noted supporting actor Michael Jeter, who died in 2003.

You remember that guy. He was in the Green Mile and Evening Shade. Little fellow. Glasses.

Almost immediately, the gaffe became the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter.

Alright, so it spawned some good laughs. Accidents happen and we all had fun.

The only person disappointed by this snafu? This guy. Always a bridesmaid and never an honorary All-Star.
