Ellen Mispronounced Comedian Hasan Minhaj’s Name, So He Pointed Out Name Double-Standards https://t.co/73qQcKF8Gw— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) April 13, 2019
Hasan Minhaj, host of Netflix show “patriot act”, attended the Ellen show earlier this week.
During this visit, the hostess mispronounced his name, prompting him to say "people always mispronounce it”.
The comic took this opportunity to correct the pronunciation of his name. "I'm so sorry I can't pronounce it. Meet my son, Higsby Witherthrottle III!" he joked. Adding, "if you can pronounce Ansel Elgort, you can pronounce Hasan Minhaj."
Do people mispronounce your non English name, ONTD? Does the Starbucks barista always misspell your name when ordering?
