Golden Globes Misspells John Legend’s Name

“Bahahaha loser,” Chrissy Teigen says after her husband is renamed “John Ledgend” by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Among the numerous blunders during Sunday’s Golden Globes awards show — from a broken teleprompter to multiple references to “Hidden Fences” — was a very simple typo on a very important table setting.

John Legend was somehow renamed as “John Ledgend” by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on his name card at the Beverly Hilton, a mistake that was not overlooked by his wife, Chrissy Teigen.

“Bahahaha loser,” the model wrote on Twitter, along with a photo of a scowling Legend.

Aside from the fact that “Legend” is a common word and easier to spell than most names in Hollywood, the “Glory” singer was a presenter at the show, won the Best Original Song award at the 2015 Golden Globes and stars in “La La Land,” which entered Sunday night with seven nominations — the most of any film this year.

Big mistake, HFPA. Better luck next time.
