CNN made a glaring on-screen error Friday night during a segment over the Navy SEAL who claims to have killed Osama Bin Laden.
Instead of the network's chyron reading "Osama," CNN spelled out "Obama."
"Seal who claims he killed Obama under attack," the chyron stated.
The error did not go unnoticed. Moments after the segment aired, individuals turned to Twitter to poke fun at CNN's mistake.
"Wow the SEALs are out of control," BuzzFeed's deputy news director Jon Passantino wrote.

"CNN reports SEAL kills 'Obama' NOT ' Osama.' Oops," wrote another.
