(Newser) – Someone making a tribute to the late Nelson Mandela apparently got him mixed up with actor Morgan Freeman. Awkward. The billboard in India shows Freeman's face along with those of Mother Teresa, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King. A photo of the billboard was posted to Twitter and quickly went viral. Freeman played Mandela in the movie Invictus.
