There aren’t too many people out there who haven’t seen a movie starring Denzel Washington, or witnessed his funny personality in various television interviews. In the last four decades, he’s established himself as a force in Hollywood – both as an actor and a director. While viewers have come to know the name of the 21st century’s greatest living actor, we as a collective might’ve been wrong when it comes to saying his birth name. The faux pas became known as a tweet of an old clip that went viral.

Fans were in shock when YouTuber and comedian KevOnStage took to Twitter and posted an old clip of the two-time Oscar winner on "The Graham Norton Show" revealing the decades-long error. The short clip sees Washington correcting a flabbergasted Norton in the nicest way possible. To see the comedian’s spot-on reaction and commentary on the funny exchange, check out the viral clip below.
