John Travolta isn’t the only one who has been struggling with name recognition of late.

In an attempt to cover the capture of Mexican cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, The Lakewood Shopper, an Orthodox Jewish newspaper based in Lakewood, New Jersey, accidentally used a photograph of Luis Guzman, a popular Puerto Rican-American comedian from New York’s Lower East Side, Elite Daily reported.
