As presenters discussed fashion on This Morning, they said Ruth Negga was "flying the flag for British style".
Bad move This Morning, very bad.
People took to Twitter as soon as the segment aired to kindly correct them on their blunder.
The Irish Ethiopian actress was up for Best Actress for her role in Loving last night but she lost to Emma Stone who was awarded for her role in La La Land.
The Limerick native stood out on the night however, and stunned in a gorgeous red guna.
Just caught up on @thismorning and can't believe they called Ruth Negga British!!! Get your bloody facts right...... 😠— Mary Smyth (@mmsmyth) February 27, 2017
This Morning claiming Ruth Negga as British... She's Irish-Ethiopian, born in Ethiopia and raised in Limerick from the age of 7. Brits... pic.twitter.com/3aRWj1lW2Y— Seána Nic Ruairí (@MccrorySeana) February 27, 2017
@thismorning just wish to inform you that Ruth Negga is in fact IRISH, not British as your fashion expert tried to claim, sorry😊— Sarah✨ (@SarahCleere) February 27, 2017
