BET Flubs Spelling of Lionel Richie’s Name!
The “Dancing on the Ceiling” singer began to read his piece when the graphic on the screen misspelled his last name- Ritchie (it’s really Richie).
Fans began taking to Twitter to criticize the network for the error, with one man writing, “You really didn't misspell his name, @BETAwards!!!!???? C'mon y'all!!! OMG!!!”
Nonetheless, Lionel declared, "Soul is a feeling. Not a color. Talent is a God-given gift, and not a category. Out of the box is that magical place where talent -– pure talent goes -– to live and thrive and breath. And may you never give that up as long as you're in this business."
