NBCUniversal-Owned Monkey Kingdom Apologizes After Mistaking Comedian Dane Baptiste For Actor Richard Blackwood

Exclusive: Monkey Kingdom, the NBCUniversal-owned British production company, has apologized profusely after mistaking comedian Dane Baptiste for actor Richard Blackwood during an exchange with the former.

Baptiste tweeted about the error on Monday, revealing that an unnamed TV production company sent him a press photo for his approval. Instead of sending an image of Baptiste, however, the company sent one of Blackwood.

“Tv production company just sent me press shots of myself to approve before they start the press run. This is the picture the sent Me of Me,” he wrote in a post that has now been retweeted nearly 3,500 times. “I swear on my mother’s soul they sent it.”
