Aisha Tyler Blasts 'Messy Journalism' Following Sasha Obama Mix-Up

An article published by the Daily Mail features a picture of the 'Talk' co-host who is labeled as the youngest daughter of former president, Barack Obama.

AceShowbiz - Aisha Tyler wasn't happy after being mistakenly identified as Sasha Obama in an article. "The Talk" co-host took to social media to set the record straight and called out a publication for the mix-up.

The said article, which was published by the Daily Mail, featured a picture of Aisha who was labeled as the youngest daughter of former president, Barack Obama. Aisha was seen grinning ear to ear as she walked over to greet power couple Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z as they seemingly accidentally encountered each other at the Los Angeles hotspot, Mother Wolf.

"Dear @DailyMailUK: I VERY much appreciate you mistaking me for the lovely 20-year-old Sasha Obama," Aisha tweeted on Sunday, February 27. "I'll assume that was due to my buoyant, youthful appearance & not just messy journalism."

She went on to say, "Regardless, it was fantastic to see the legendary @Beyonce & Jay-Z at dinner. They were dazzling and gracious (especially to my friend @JarettSays, just out of frame) & the meal at #motherwolfla was truly spectacular. Can't wait to go back!"
