7 Pairs of Black Celebrities White Folks Have Mistaken For Each Other But Who Don’t Look Alike At All

Sheree Whitfield and Sahara Davenport

Sheree Whitfield/Sahara Davenport

In 2012, Logo network’s RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Sahara Davenport died of heart failure. When tvguide.com reported the news of the drag queen’s death, it posted a photo of Bravo network’s former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Sheree Whitfield.

The website confused Whitfield with the male reality star. According to reports, Whitfield had to ask TV Guide remove her photo from the website before they realized the mistake.

Nelson Mandela/Morgan Freeman

Last year, a public tribute to Nelson Mandela in India accidentally honored actor Morgan Freeman instead.

When the former South African president died, the image of Freeman was mistakenly used on a billboard instead of the anti-apartheid revolutionary who died at age 95.
