We’re not sure if this was an honest mistake or someone’s idea of a practical joke, but if you googled how much Bill Cosby was worth on March 16, a picture of Kevin Hart popped up in place of the TV legend.
Whoopsie! How on Earth could anyone confuse 36-year-old comedian Kevin Hart with TV icon and current sexual assault suspect Bill Cosby, 78? Well, that was the question the entire internet was asking when if you asked Google’s search engine how much Bill Cosby was worth, a photo of a smiling Kevin popped up in place of The Cosby Show star, and of course the Twittersphere went nuts.
The box showed a short bio via TheRichest.com that told how Bill is an “American musician, activist, author, actor, comedian, education and television producer Bill Cosby has an estimated net worth of $400 million. Some of Cosby’s most notable works include The Bill Cosby Show, I Spy, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, Cosby, The Cosby Show, The Cosby Mysteries, and The Electric Company.”
The only problem was, the photo used in Bill’s place was one of a smiling Kevin wearing a green shirt. The crazy thing is when you clicked on The Richest’s link at the bottom of the box, it directed the user to the site where Bill’s bio correctly showed the elderly comedian. So we’re not sure of this was some sort of Google goof, a crazy inside prank, or just some sort of malfunction! Get Kevin’s stand up special Let Me Explain by clicking right here.
Of course this did not go unnoticed in the Twittersphere, as word of the gaff broke out and people started searching for themselves and realizing, yes, Kevin Hart has been mistaken for Bill Cosby.
Sorry Google … But Kevin Hart Is Not Bill Cosby https://t.co/vc2MPtvH5M

What’s even more crazy, this mis-identification has apparently been up since March 1, and yet no one from the company has taken notice to fix it!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about this Google goof? Are you shocked that they haven’t fixed it yet?
