Last night at the Oscars John Travolta just totally botched pronouncing Idina Menzel's name on stage instead calling her Adele Dazeem. Was it nerves? Did he misread the teleprompter? Was the teleprompter really that hard to see? Does this happen a lot? Somebody get the outtakes from any movie he's ever made!
Today, John Travolta is still trending and countless fake "Adele Dazeem" accounts have popped up on twitter. While people are mostly teasing Travolta for his mistake, others have rushed to his side blaming his openly talked about dyslexia. Anybody ever consider the teleprompter got it wrong?
Either way, when performing the Oscar winning song at the Oscars, it'd be nice to be introduced correctly. However, Idina Menzel is probably pretty grateful for Travolta taking all the attention today because if you were paying attention in between laughing and tweeting about the mispronunciation, she did sort of screech out the last few notes of the song. Probably from being so angry that she was introduced as ADELE DAZEEM. Unless of course, that really was Adele Dazeem, Idina Menzel's slightly less talented twin and John Travolta was just trying to show us the truth!
So now that you've seen the mistake, here are the Top 12 funniest tweets about it.

John Travolta didn't "mispronounce" so much as he "made up an entirely different name like a boss."— Matthew O'Brien (@MattOB34) March 3, 2014

Your John Travolta name is any female pop star plus the name of your most recent cab driver.— Alison Forns (@alisonforns) March 3, 2014
Go easy on John Travolta. Before he went on he told me he's got chills, they're multiplying and he's losing control. #Oscars— THE STUDIO EXEC (@studioexec1) March 3, 2014
Mocking John Travolta for bumbling Idina Menzel's name takes our focus away from mocking his hair. #Perspective— Daniel Fienberg (@HitFixDaniel) March 3, 2014
So, apparently John Travolta is dyslexic, which explains why he butchered that name. And why his hair loss is suddenly backwards.— Peyton's Head (@PeytonsHead) March 3, 2014
This morning, Ellen, who did a pretty ok job hosting the Oscars, tweeted this.

Travolta burn? Drunk tweet? Either way, Ellen is queen of twitter for the day (and maybe forever).
