John Travolta Messes up Idina Menzel’s name
John Travolta mangling Idina Menzel’s name was one of the most meme-worthy moments of the 2014 Oscars. But in the few hours since the broadcast, there has been some backlash against the Adele Dazeem jokes. According to critics, John’s flub was a result of his dyslexia, and it’s not nice to tease someone for a learning disability. That’s bullying! However, according to Scientology he and Tom Cruise can’t have the reading disorder- because dyslexia isn’t even real!
According to Dr. Harold Levinson
The inner-ear dysfunction causing dyslexia is often responsible for various errors, including slips- of- the- tongue similar to that made by John Travolta. Denial of dyslexia, ADHD and even other medical conditions require analysis to determine and resolve underlying motivation.
