John Travolta Butchers Idina Menzel’s Name at Oscars
There were plenty of tough to pronounce names at the Academy Awards Sunday night — Chiwetel Ejiofor, Barkhad Abdi and Lupita Nyong.
But actress and singer Idina Menzel proved to be the most difficult name to pronounce — at least for John Travolta.
The actor introduced Menzel as “Adele Dazeem.”
She performed the Oscar-nominated song “Let It Go” from Disney’s “Frozen.”
The song won for Best Original Song.
Travolta’s flub sparked a firestorm on social media — including an “Adele Dazeem” Twitter account.
