Zooey Deschanel was obviously VERY surprised to find out that she was involved in the Boston Bombings…

Or rather, she was involved according to the TV closed caption writers at Caption Solutions!

When the story surrounding the Boston attacks was still developing, the New Girl's name was mistakenly inserted in a closed caption about the man hunt for the now captured Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev.

The caption read:

"Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel"

So, to rectify their EPIC captions fail, the people over at the Kansas based company Caption Solutions issued a formal apology stating that they "deeply regret" the mistake and they "sincerely apologize for this error."

And even though wrongly accusing someone of being a suspect in a TERROR plot is SUPER awful, we're sure Zooey will accept their apology like the classy lady she is.
