That's Penelope Cruz -- not Salma Hayek -- standing with Robert De Niro at the 2014 Academy Awards. The person behind the Academy's Instagram account made a major flub when the user misidentified Cruz as Hayek in a photo taken backstage.

Many Instagram users were quick to notice the blunder and called out the Academy for mistaking Cruz for Hayek.

The Instagram account took down the photo shortly thereafter, USA Today notes, but some are still upset the Academy confused the two Hispanic actresses on its official Instagram feed.
