Color not changing and "app.js:4 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'style' of undefined at app.js:4"

Hi, for some reason my code for changing the li items to purple is working great. But when trying to change the "error-not-purple" class to red, it won't work. And the only error the console gives me tells me to reference line 4, which I know is working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Link to workspace: https://w.trhou.se/4fl8mngpgr
