Betty White Dead?

'Today' Makes Grave Mistake

7/8/2009 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've lost a lot of icons recently -- but no matter what NBC says, Betty White isn't one of 'em!

During a report yesterday morning at Forest Lawn Cemetery, "Today's" Michael Okwu listed the "Golden Girl" as one of the celebrities already buried there.

Meredith Vieira corrected him -- he probably meant Bette Davis.

Like most all of America am bored to Death hearing of a Pervert & Molester called the "King of Pop! That Fruit wouldn't come to America as he couldn't stand it asnd we surely hated the little white Gloved FREAK. I'm no Betty White Fan per say but really enjoyed her comedy and talent. I still think NoBAMA & M.Jackson should hgave made a ,movie titled Liar/ Liar Pt. 2.. God knows these idiots earned the Conservatism room for all of You Liberal HYPOCRIOTES who HATED Michael Jackson & his deeds, and now Mourn the FREAK.

Perhaps this "obviously didn't do his homework", black reporter should be called "racist" since he didn't get it right by the White women!!!!!!! That's an example of the ridiculous, twisted mentality of many racist pieces of humanity we see today, as disgustingly displayed over and over again in Los Angeles this week at Staples. Nauseating!!! Meredith Viera is an example of a very classy, respectful lady, and a quick-as-a-whip news anchor. May this errant reporter be forever grateful to a white women for KINDLY saving his novice black arse as he faced millions!!! Meredith, your respectful kindness should receive more praise than I'm sure it will. YOU GO (WHITE) GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's to the LIVING Betty White and the memory of Betty Davis as well!!

NBC is the worst of the major networks but they all patronize the blacks. In today's world you can't criticize a black person without being called a racist. Pitiful.

Betty White is one classy lady and I know she will make a good joke out of this. I do believe the reporter needs a new set of glasses (they really are not attractive and may be interfering with his reading). This is his at least second slip of the proverbial tongue in a couple of weeks. There was his statement that the death of Michaell Jackson would never happen again????!!!! My oh my, I do believe the reporter needs some time off..........
