Nancy Pelosi is being roundly criticized for putting up a humiliating photo while wishing Willie Mays happy birthday. The only problem was that the photo was not of Mays at all, but of Willie McCovey.
“Happy 90th Birthday to an all-American icon, Willie Mays. A trailblazing, record-breaking baseball player, civil rights leader, and champion for youth sports and well-being, Willie Mays is a civic legend and national treasure. #SayHey90,” said a tweet from Pelosi’s official Twitter account.
The post contained a photo of McCovey rather than Mays.

Oops. That’s awkward.
Pelosi has since deleted the tweet, but it was out long enough for the nation to see it.

Pretty inexcusable to mix up Mays and McCovey when you’re San Francisco’s Congressional Representative. https://t.co/GJar618t1q
