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!

Today Show: Click to watch
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.

.Michael Jackson is and was not the best Entertainer to ever live."
Which is it? He is, or he isn't?

"Couldnt read, nor write music, and his lyrics are those of a second grader."
Are you freeking kidding me??

"Browns have now surpassed you and they are edging you out in California in a way is spreading Eastward"
Yes, why must references of color always be made?

"go back to school"
Yes, you probably should.

I wonder, do people actually read their posts before posting them? You know, to spell check? To grammar check, etc.?

Well, NOT to know the difference tween movie legend Bette Davis & tv legend but FAR different Betty White, is truly appalling. WHERE is NBC finding these ppl? Its so sad.

They're robots I tell you.
If what he was reading said his name he would have said he is buried there.

What?    

He appears to be reading from a script that was given to him. When corrected, he appeared to be looking to ensure to verify the name. Given his last name (I am just surmising), he probably is not familiar with either of the stars. Unfortunately, he was publicly embarassed by the mistake of another.

What?    

I suspect somewhere in Jamie Foxx is ill post there is/are insult(s). However, it is so lenghty and poorly written that I am left with some gnawing feelings.
