His shout out to an old love was quite rude

The biggest flub from the Academy Awards this year had to be the John Travolta incident. USAToday reports about the incident and what followed.

It was also one of the most viral moments of 2014. It was when John Travolta took the stage to introduce Idina Menzelwho was set to sing Frozen's 'Let it Go', he decided to instead and most puzzlingly, encouraged America to welcome "Adele Dazeem."

Excuse me? What was he thinking? Or was he thinking at all?

Twitter went crazy and, by the next morning, Slate had saluted the moment with an Adele Dazeem Name Generator, which handily offered to 'Travoltify' your name.

"I've been beating myself up all day," Travolta said in a statement after the blunder. "Then I thought...what would Idina Menzel say?

She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!'" But there are no hard feelings, Menzel told Billboard."He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous e-mail, and we're buddies and it's all cool," she said, noting he also sent her flowers. And now, she says, she's a household name. "Please, I mean, I've only benefited from it."

Although she seemed to take it in all in stride we still think it was way out of line and he should not be asked back to the Academy Awards again. That may seem harsh to some of you but think about being your big moment in the spotlight and someone steals your thunder right out from under you with little regard to no regard to your big moment. I think it is disgraceful.
