AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes just wanted to share some love on the annual celebration of love and affection, but she bullied for a mistake she made while wishing her fans a happy Valentine's Day instead. "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star was recently trolled for mispronouncing the word, "Valentine's" in a video she posted on Instagram.
The clip in question, which has since been deleted, featured NeNe sporting a red tracksuit as saying, "Happy sexy Valentime's Day" while smacking her hand with a whip. There was also a video of her repeating the phrase next to a huge, heart-shaped chocolate box from beauty magazine CR Fashion Book.
Despite the mispronunciation, NeNe apparently spelled the word right in the caption of the post. "Happy Valentine's Day to all you lovers out there from me and @crfashionbook," so she wrote, along with several emojis.
People unsurprisingly didn't miss out on her mispronunciation, with many immediately poking fun at her mistake in the comment section. "Did she just say valentime?" one asked, while another pointing out her mistake, "It's TINE not TIME." One other said, "Did you just say 'Valentimes??????' Good gawd Nene!!!"
"I guess Feb 14th is valentine's day and the next day is VelenTIMES day... Let's celebrate," one individual noted, as another didn't even try to be nice. "Such an uneducated ugly b***h. It's *valentines day. Love you," so the user wrote in the comment section. Meanwhile, one person thought that NeNe would be a perfect host of "The Wendy Williams Show" given that Wendy once was trolled for pronouncing Dua Lipa's name wrong.
In a May 2018 episode of her show, Wendy asked her talk show host about what they thought of Dua while looking over red carpet footage from the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. However, instead of pronouncing the British singer's name correctly, the talk show host said, "Doola Leep." Many people later made fun of her mistake on social media, and Dua herself joined in the fun. "Is this a new kanye song?" she said in response to a clip of the moment.
