Ben Affleck isn’t holding any grudge towards Snoop Dogg for mispronouncing his name. In fact, he’s totally fine with the “Gin and Juice” singer messing up his name in 2021.
It all began when Snoop, 50, mispronounced the actor’s name while revealing the Golden Globe nominations last month. Instead of getting his name right, the rapper called him “Been Afflay.”
Realizing he had pronounced the name totally wrong, Snoop immediately apologized to the Oscar winner by saying; “My fault, sorry, Ben Affleck, sorry for that Ben!”
Affleck, 49, was a guest on the latest episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” where he spoke about Snoop’s flub. “He did get the emphasis a little off, yes,” he told host Kelly Clarkson.
“It’s funny because I always grew up and I thought, like, ‘Affleck? What an incredibly ugly name.’ Now it sounds like the duck commercial,” he said. The actor noted how his name sounded like the moniker of the Aflac insurance company.
