The most embarrassing moment of the 2014 Academy Awards most definitely goes to John Travolta! The actor introduced Idina Menzel’s performance of “Let it Go,” but started a Twitter frenzy when he mispronounced her name as Adele Dazeem.

“I’ve been beating myself up all day,” he admitted in a statement. “Then I thought…what would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, ‘Let it go! Let it go!’ Idina is incredibly talented and I’m so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”

Regardless of his statement, John’s flub created a variety of parody Twitter accounts. Plus, a John Travolta Name Producer has also been created, which “Travoltafies” any name typed into it. He’s never going to live this one down!
