The NWSL is in hot water after a video package featuring Jessica McDonald misidentified her son, Jeremiah.

The special, which aired at halftime during North Carolina’s game on Saturday, was in celebration of Juneteenth and highlighted McDonald’s relationship with her son.

The broadcast, however, cut to footage of a young fan in the stands, wrongfully identifying the child as McDonald’s son. The Courage striker took to Twitter after the game to point out the league’s mistake.

Lisa Baird, Commissioner of the NWSL, has since apologized for the error, stating that the league was responsible for the production of the segment.
