A Fox station in Dallas mistakenly identified the Boston Marathon bombing suspect as actress Zooey Deschanel on its closed captioning feed Friday.

According to Uproxx.com, shortly before 2 p.m. as the manhunt for 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was underway, viewers watching Fox 4 with closed captioning on saw this headline: "Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel."

When the 33-year-old New Girl actress heard about the snafu, she tweeted: "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL."
