Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam called out a CNN anchor on social media Wednesday after she brutally mispronounced his name over the weekend.
CNN news anchor Zain Asher was previewing the international athletes set to play in the NBA’s All-Star game during a segment on Friday when she seemed to stumble over a number of player’s names but ultimately butchered the pronunciation of Siakam’s name.
The NBA champion and two-time NBA All-Star playfully poked fun at the mispronunciation, calling the attempt “crazy.”
