Huffington Post reporter Ryan J. Reilly made an unfortunate mix-up on Twitter while reporting about the events in Furguson, Missouri:

Twitter was quick to inform Reilly that the items pictured were in fact a rather innocuous collection of ear plugs, not rubber bullets. Still, despite Reilly's correction and retraction of the tweet, other Twitter users were quick to pounce on other things they'd like to be "confirmed."

One thing that can most certainly be confirmed is the hilarity of mixing up ear plugs for rubber bullets.
