A New Zealand publication made a mistake by mistaking beloved Marvel co-founder Stan Lee for Spike Lee in a headline reporting about Stan’s passing. They probably just saw the lee and decided it was the same person but their wrong. Plus they look nothing alike.

The Gisborne Herald printed a photograph of stan Lee, who passed 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.

He wrote under the poster, “God Bless Stan Lee. Me? Not Yet. I’m Still A Live, And strivin’. Ya-DIG? Sho-Nuff.” We know mistakes happen – but the front page though? No one caught that?

Check out the mistake!
