A Fan Mistakes Waka Flocka for Richard Sherman


Published December 11, 2015

One is a rap star.

The other is a Super Bowl champion and two-time Pro Bowler.

But the fact that Waka Flocka Flame and Richard Sherman are both Black, tall and have dreads was enough for a group of employees at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to confuse the MC for the Seattle Seahawks' cornerback.

What's worse is they broadcast their embarrassing case of mistaken identity to the masses via Facebook.

They straight up thought they were taking a picture with Sherman, when they were really getting a flick with Waka Flocka. The fact that it was in Seattle presents more of a reason why they should know how Sherman looks. No excuse.

After being called out online for the critical error, the Facebook user changed his post caption from Richard Sherman to Waka Flocka with a smiley face emoji.

Waka Flocka :)
