      The tweet was later deleted and updated where the "laughter" was replaced with "music" and mocked themselves for the bad tweet using a GIF of Hugh Laurie saying, "Thank you, this is obviously a terrible mix-up."

      Meanwhile, netizens had been mocking the controversy-riddled Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the mix-up. One Twitter user wrote, "This tweet is the funniest thing to ever happen in the history of the world." Another user added, "Even the Golden Globes tweet-bot is drunk and corrupt, you've got to respect the brand consistency."
