15 People Who Think Google [Was] Honoring Hugo Chávez

Yep, they really thought that…

BuzzFeed

Hugo Chávez was the socialist president of Venezuela; Cesar Chavez was a labor leader and civil rights activist. See the difference?

Some conservatives outraged over Google’s choice to feature a Cesar Chavez doodle instead of something Easter-related were especially angry because they mistook Cesar Chavez for the far more polarizing Hugo Chávez. March 31 is Cesar Chavez Day, not the late Hugo Chávez’s 86th birthday, as some have claimed.

It didn’t help that conservative Twitter watchdogs Twitchy, led by Michelle Malkin, misidentified the Google doodle in question as Hugo.

Here’s Michelle Malkin tweeting a link to the post.

The headline was changed a few hours before Malkin tweeted the link.
