Zooey Deschanel Not The Boston Bomber: Caption Company Issues Apology

Zooey Deschanel has received an apology after a TV gaff surrounding one of the Boston Marathon bombers saw one of the two suspects erroneously tagged as the New Girl actress.

Caption Solutions provides the closed captions for Fox network affiliate KDFW and, during coverage of the terrible incidents of last week - which saw three people die and dozens injured when two explosions went off by the Boston Marathon finishing line – they mistakenly tagged Deschanel’s name to a picture of actual bomb suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. On seeing the error, which occurred during last Friday’s manhunt for the suspect (April 19, 2013), Deschanel took to Twitter and wrote “Woah! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”

Now an apology has been issued, according to the New York Daily News, who report that a statement from Lawrence, Kansas-based Caption Solutions said that it and its captioner “deeply regret” the mistake. Company president Kala J. Patterson added in a statement issued Tuesday (April 23, 2013) they “sincerely apologize for this error.” Earlier in the week, Tsarnaev was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and, if found guilty, he could face the death penalty. The 19 year-old’s elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was also a suspect though he died after a police shoot-out last week aged 26.
