No One Can Pronounce Lupita Nyong’o's Name
There are certain things that a big Oscar win and the declaration that you are the world’s most beautiful person can get you — things like, well, an Oscar statuette, the respect of your peers, a cool magazine cover, continued recognition, good publicity — but there’s one thing those honors can’t earn anyone if they have a slightly different name. You know it. ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live‘ host Jimmy Kimmel knows it. Lupita Nyong’o knows it.
But, these news reporters sure don’t know it. It’s any kind of guarantee that anyone will actually pronounce your name correctly. Or, as is the case with these bonkers reporters, that anyone will even try to pronounce it correctly. Brutal!
