Taraji P Henson, Instagram caption, Coldplay, Super Bowl 2016


This may be our favorite mistake in the history of human history.

Flawless queen Taraji P. Henson was in the crowd at Super Bowl 2016, because of course one of the hottest TV stars on the planet right now had to be invited to the biggest game of the year. And it looks like really enjoyed watching the Pepsi Halftime Show because she posted a video of Coldplay performing and said in her caption that she was a "happy camper." Unfortunately, she said that she was watching Maroon 5not Coldplay. 

"YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper I am," Henson writes next to her video of Coldplay during halftime. Now, either she was totally shading Coldplay by calling them Maroon 5 (does that mean Adam Levine and Chris Martin are interchangeable to her?) or she made an honest mistake.

We like to believe she was in character as Cookie and just wanted to let Coldplay know that even though they were performing on one of the biggest stages in the world, they could be taken down a peg or two.

Henson's followers filled her Instagram comment section, pointing out her flub and laughing at her wrong labeling. They even wrote steps to edit her Instagram caption. Henson finally noticed the error of her ways and deleted the Instagram in its entirety, but it shall still go down in history as the best caption of all time. Even Levine caught the mistake and responded on his own Instagram page. Bless the Internet.

To be fair, Levine did just dye his hair blonde so he definitely looks more like Martin now. Henson eventually acknowledged her tweet shortly after deleting her pic.
