Stallone: Rocky Star Apologizes in Instagram for Spelling Errors Regarding Creed

After the movie Creed swept the awards at Friday night’s NAACP Image Awards, Sylvester Stallone apologized via Instagram for the spelling errors he made in his victory post.

“Presenting CREED at the NASCP Image awards. Great night, great audience! Our director, RYan Cooglar and Michael B Jordon won!” Stallone posted on his account, with a photo of himself presenting the film at the ceremony.

The star had intended to congratulate “Creed” co-star Michael B. Jordan on the top honor, Entertainer of the Year, and Creed director Ryan Coogler for receiving two awards.

Just hours after the initial celebratory post, Stallone apologized for is spelling mistakes. “Sorry for the miss spelling of NAACP and Jordan… Confidentially, besides everything else, I am slightly dyslexic,” Stallone wrote.

Stallone also apologized for neglecting to thank Jordan and Coogler in his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, at which he won the best supporting actor award.

Stallone’s performance in Creed is recognized with a nomination for an Academy Award in the best supporting actor category.

Stallone explained his view of the role: “It’s a character that I love and never thought I’d play again. I didn’t think it would resonate like it did, especially with a newer generation.”
