Jenna Bush Hager is under fire for mistakenly combining the titles of two films starring African Americans during a Golden Globes 2017 red carpet interview.

The 35-year-old NBC correspondent was chatting with artist Pharrell Williams, who produced the Globes-nominated film , when things took a cringe-worthy turn.

"So you're nominated for ," Jenna confidently said to Pharrell.

Unfortunately, Jenna seemed to confuse ' story of the three African-American women (played by Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, and Janelle Monae) who helped launch astronaut John Glenn into orbit in the 1960s with Denzel Washington's also-nominated film adaptation of the August Wilson play .

While the 43-year-old entertainer didn't correct George W. Bush's daughter, Twitter users were quick to slam Jenna's faux pas.

"Jenna Bush just asked Pharrell about 'Hidden Fences'," tweeted Leo Spy. "I guess all black movies look the same to her."

"Hidden Fences wins Best Motion Picture - Musical or White Faux Pas," tweeted Andy Moskowitz.

Added Chris Reynolds, "'Hidden Fences', a Marvel-esque team-up coming in 2017. Thanks Jenna Bush for making that wonderful, slightly racist, mistake."
