Whoops: Newspaper Mistakes ‘Black’ Spike Lee for ‘White’ Stan Lee in Death Report [Photo]

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?
