A New Zealand publication made a grave mistake by mistaking beloved Marvel co-founder Stan Lee for Spike Lee in a headline reporting about Stan’s passing.
The Gisborne Herald printed a photograph of Stan Lee, who died at 95, on the front page of their newspaper but wrote Spike Lee’s name instead.
Spike responded to the mix-up on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of the newspaper.
“God Bless Stan Lee. Me? Not Yet. And Dat’s Da “I’m Still A Live, And Strivin’” Truth, Ruth. YA-DIG? SHO-NUFF,” the director wrote.
We know mistakes happen — but the front page, though? No one caught that?
