Washington Post Misidentifies Almost the Entire Cast of ‘The Joy Luck Club’ in Photo

The Washington Post has edited the caption in its article about “The Joy Luck Club” after misidentifying nearly all the cast in the photo.

In their article titled “Why ‘The Joy Luck Club’ is the most interesting — and frustrating — addition to the National Film Registry this year,” the publication originally featured the actresses’ names as Kieu Chinh, Ming-Na Wen, Tamlyn Tomita, Tsai Chin, France Nuyen, Lauren Tom, Lisa Lu and Rosalind Chao, according to The Wrap.

One Twitter user pointed out the similarities of The Washington Post’s picture caption to that of IMDB’s with the same still from the movie.

After all the backlash, The Washington Post has updated its picture and added a note on top of the article that reads, “An earlier version of this article included a photo caption that incorrectly identified the actresses in ‘The Joy Luck Club.’ The caption has been updated.”

Here’s what other social media users said about the mistake:

At one point Rosalind Chao tagged her fellow actress Tamlyn Tomita to comment on the blunder.
