Closed captioning fail

Closed captions users were led astray over the weekend with an incorrect caption stating that New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel was the Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

Fox News in the US were reporting on the chase for the suspect when the closed captioning stated that the actress was indeed the 19-year-old being sought.

Deschanel herself didn’t seem too fazed, tweeting: “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”
