Oops! Lionel Richie Misspelled As “Ritchie” At BET Awards
Lionel Richie was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards on Sunday.
Too bad BET misspelled his name.
When the singer took the podium to accept his honor, the network labeled him “Lionel Ritchie” in the on-screen graphics (see right).
People noticed the gaffe, and #LionelRitchie was soon trending nationwide on Twitter.
At least they got “Lionel” right!
