Lizzo fans are outraged over a simple case of mistaken identity.
The incident happened during a segment called "Will! Kathy! Know Them?" on an episode of "Watch What Happens Live."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathy Hilton mistakenly identified singer Lizzo (above right) as the character "Precious" portrayed by actress Gabourey Sidibe in the movie Precious.
Crystal Kung Minkoff, Hilton's co-star on RHOBH, tried to help her out by saying, "She is precious though, Lizzo is precious."
Hilton quickly agreed, saying, "That's what I call her! Her nickname's 'Precious' to me."
Host Andy Cohen hid his face with the question cards, and appeared horrified by Hilton's mistake. He quickly moved on to the next question.
Both Gabby (L) and Lizzo (R) are obese Black women, but the similarities end there.
Fans took to Twitter to blast Hilton for giving credence to the stereotype that all Black people look alike.
One Twitter user wrote: "There's nothing funny about Kathy Hilton calling Lizzo 'Precious.' Absolutely nothing."
Another user wrote: "Kathy Hilton damn well know Lizzo ain't Precious, a FICTIONAL character. That's mad disrespectful, racist, and fatphobic."

In reporting the conviction, TMZ used a photo of rapper Positive K (left) in place of Kidd's photo.
Prosecutors say Kidd Creole, 62, stabbed John Jolly, 55, during a dispute in 2017. Creole, who was on his way to work, stabbed Jolly after he thought the vagrant had a made a pass at him.
Jolly was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

Positive K, born Darryl Gibson, 54, is best known for his rap hits "I'm Not Havin' It" (featuring MC Lyte) and his 1992 hit "I Got a Man."
The two men look distinctly different: The Kidd Creole is light skinned, while K is a few shades darker and nearly a decade younger than Kidd.

Here is the original photo taken from Getty Images' photo archive that shows Positive K (center) posing with Melle Mel (L) and Sway (R). The photo is dated February 26, 2008.
An offended Positive K quickly pointed out TMZ's error in a screenshot on his Instagram account, along with the caption:
"Really @tmz_tv. When did POSITIVE K become Kidd Creole? So now all Black People look alike? You all were the same ones who pronounced the late great DMX deceased days before his death. I thought this was a platform of professional journalists?! But l'm beginning to think that research on a topic, story, or article is not a requirement to intern or be employed at @tmz_tv."
After rapper Silentó was arrested last week and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, he went viral on social media. But not for his arrest.
The 22-year-old rapper, who is best known for his hit "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)", was arrested after he allegedly entered a random home in the Los Angeles area wielding a hatchet, ABC 7 reports.
He was tackled to the floor by the home's occupants, but he escaped and was caught by police about 2 blocks away.
According to gossipmongers, Silentó went into the home in search of his girlfriend who leaked a vulgar image of him online.
Silentó, real name Richard Hawk, trended online after the photo went viral on Twitter.com. The photo was originally posted in a private sub on Reddit.com titled Silentó bussy. "Bussy" is a colloquial term for "boy pu**y."
The graphic image shows a young man snapping a graphic selfie after engaging in a tryst with another man.
But the person in the photo is not Silentó.
The man was identified by Twitter users as an Internet p0rn star named Da Don (not to be confused with Lori Harvey's new boyfriend, Da Donn.
Da Don (the p0rn star) is a 26-year-old male who earns a living posting p0rnograpic material to sites like OnlyFans.
Although he is 26, he looks like a teenager being sexually abused by grown men in videos.
Da Don's filthy images and videos are easily accessible to children on Twitter.com.
A scandalous video featuring a man who resembles Pastor David Wilson of Texarkana, Texas, and a woman who is not his wife has gone viral on social media.
The video shows the man performing a sex act on a woman. But a family member says the video isn't real and someone is trying to ruin the minister's good name.
The elder Wilson is the senior pastor of Bibleway Ministries and World Out Reach Inc. in Texas.
"I'm a minister of 32 years, have pastored for 25. I'm a motivator and Love to see lives transformed to the Glory of God," Wilson says on his website.
But his critics say Wilson is only motivated to chase skirts in the church.
Wilson's daughter says the man in the video is not her father. She said the scandalous video is a case of mistaken identity.
"Sometimes we unknowingly share our names with complete strangers. But that does NOT mean we share the same Mission or Faith! I am the daughter of the Great Doctor David E. Wilson. This other David E. Wilson is a man who just so happens to share same name as him."
Correction: according to a loyal reader, the daughter was referring to her father - another pastor with the same name from Dallas TX - after trolls swarmed her dad's Facebook page because the pastor from Texarkana TX (who is in the video) deleted his FB page.
The sex scandal unfolded when someone uploaded the X-rated video to Twitter. The video shows a man of the cloth perfuming cunnilingus on a woman.
The video was captioned: "Pastor Wilson out here doing the lords work."
"That's not the first lady," commented one church parishioner.
Another Twitter user commented: "The Pastor out here speaking in tongues."
And a third Twitter user wrote: "Dam what church is this how do I become a member ASAP pastor knows what he's doing tho amen."
Sandrarose.com is a family-oriented blog, and as such, I will not post the vulgar video. But it isn't difficult to find if you know where to look.
We all look alike to someone who doesn't care about the fine details in life. There is an old saying that goes, "Every living person in the world has a doppelganger (a double or twin) that could pass for them."
