In a move that has sent shockwaves through the world of public relations and politics, Joe Biden has been accused of ‘mispronouncing’ the name of Anthony Bass – a Toronto Blue Jays pitcher who recently tweeted about a distasteful incident involving his pregnant wife and United Airlines.
Biden, who spoke at the White House yesterday, referred to Bass as ‘Anthony Pass’ in a speech about the importance of providing support to families dealing with pregnancy-related issues.
The mistake has been met with outrage by Bass, who took to Twitter to express his displeasure. “If the President of the United States can’t even get my name right, then how can we expect our elected officials to take care of other important issues?” Bass wrote.
He also added that he had sent a strongly worded letter to the White House calling for an apology. “I’m sure the President didn’t mean any harm, but it’s still unacceptable for him to mispronounce my name like that,” he said.
The tweet has since gone viral, with many people expressing their outrage at the President’s mistake. “It’s completely inappropriate for anyone – especially the leader of the free world – to make such a mistake,” tweeted one user.
Meanwhile, United Airlines has been quick to distance itself from the incident. In a statement, the company said, “We are disappointed to hear about the incident involving Mr. Bass’ wife and are working on ways to ensure that this type of thing does not happen in the future.”
It seems that no matter where you stand on the issue, everyone can agree that it’s important to show respect and get people’s names right – even if you are the President of the United States.
