"New Girl" star Zooey Deschanel has received an apology after she was misidentified in a Fox station’s TV caption as a Boston Marathon bombing suspect, reports the Associated Press.

Caption Solutions said it and its captioner "deeply regret" the mistake. The onscreen text appeared Friday during coverage of the Boston manhunt by Dallas-area Fox affiliate KDFW-TV, reading, "Marathon bomber. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel." (The suspect was 19-year-old student Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.)

When Deschanel heard about the misidentification, she tweeted, "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!"

  1. Zooey Deschanel was responsible for the Boston bombing. She was behind the whole thing. This story is a cover-up.
