Sylvester Stallone Apologizes for Misspelling ‘NAACP’

After the “Creed” team won big at Friday night’s NAACP Image Awards, Sylvester Stallone took to Instagram to apologize for a few spelling errors he made in his victory post.

“Presenting CREED at the NASCP Image awards. Great night, great audience! Our director, RYan Cooglar and Michael B Jordon won!” Stallone posted on his account along with a photo of himself presenting the film at the ceremony.

It seems the “Rocky” star had intended to congratulate “Creed” co-star Michael B. Jordan on winning the event’s top honors, Entertainer of the Year, and “Creed” director Ryan Coogler for taking home two awards.

Two hours after the initial celebratory post, Stallone apologized for is spelling mistakes.

“Sorry for the miss spelling of NAACP and Jordan… Confidentially, besides everything else, I am slightly dyslexic,” Stallone wrote.

This is not the first apology Stallone has issued to Jordan this awards season. He also repented for neglecting to thank Jordan and Coogler in his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, at which he took home the statue for best supporting actor.

Stallone’s “Creed” performance is recognized with a nomination for an Academy Award in the best supporting actor category. For our recent cover story, he explained his attitude toward the role: “It’s a character that I love and never thought I’d play again. I didn’t think it would resonate like it did, especially with a newer generation.”
