Mercury News Thought John Cho Was Glenn From ‘The Walking Dead’

San Jose, California’s daily newspaper The Mercury News mistakenly referred to John Cho as Steven Yeun’s character Glenn from the “Walking Dead” series.

The outlet committed the error in a photo caption for a story on Aneesh Chaganty’s “Searching,” a modern thriller starring Cho.

“Filmmaker and San Jose native Aneesh Chaganty, middle, with actor John Cho, Glenn from ‘The Walking Dead,’ left, and producer Sev Ohanian are ready for an interview about their new movie, ‘Searching’ at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.”

The error quickly drew outrage on social media.

Cho, who caught wind of the news, shrugged with laughter.

The Mercury News has since published a correction notice.

“A photo caption for a Local News story Tuesday identified actor John Cho as playing Glenn on ‘The Walking Dead.’ Steven Yeun played that character.

“Setting the record straight: The Mercury News corrects all significant errors that are brought to the attention of the editors.”

It’s unclear how the outlet committed the mistake, but netizens have reached a common reason.
