John Travolta Oscar Jokes Rudely Make Fun Of His Dyslexia? But Scientologists Don't Believe In Dyslexia!

john travolta gets it wrong

John Travolta mangling Idina Menzel's name was one of the most meme-worthy moments of the 2014 Oscars.

But in the few hours since the broadcast, there has been some backlash against the Adele Dazeem jokes.

According to critics, John's flub was a result of his dyslexia, and it's not nice to tease someone for a learning disability. That's bullying!

While we whole-heartedly agree that mocking someone's learning disability is insensitive and uncalled for, here's the thing- John doesn't claim to be dyslexic. In fact, according to Scientology he can't have the reading disorder- because dyslexia isn't even real!

Yeah, we're not really getting that one either. Luckily, lead Xenu expert and former dyslexic Tom Cruise explains it all in this video …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    OMG, I want to punch Tom Cruise in the face. I am dyslexic and was diagnosed in 1st grade. I never once thought it would be a thing to stop me!! I am a college graduate and actually an avid reader! All the diagnosis did was help me learn to read differently then other people and make me the determined person I am! I call bull****. He saw it as a poor me instead of a challenge to rise up! All and all I want to say is GRRRRRR!

    He needs to take that rug off his head for starters…secondly, there IS help for what troubles him..he is too old and too rich to still be struggling with basic reading…whatever, why would they even have him on that show…cannot stand that fake…feel sorry for his wife.

    Dyslexia or not I'm pretty sure John Travolta had advance warning about who he was introducing. You know someone sat him down and told him how pronounce her name. It's not like 2 minutes before he went out they handed him a card with her name.

    Tommy said they cured his. So obviously they do.

    Re: AG55 – I agree. I like Travolta, but there is no excuse for mangling her name. The dyslexia doesn't give him a pass. As you say, he could've simply memorized her name.

    John Travolta is indeed an example of Sciemtology! Thank you so much for posting this! It's mind-boggling that John Travolta is so out of touch with reality that he can't see that monument of a dorky wig, and can't even pronounce the one name of the Honored artist he is tasked with introducing. How arrogant and blind is that? Somebody has been messing with that guy's head big time.

    john travolta does not have dyslexia. tom cruise is the one who has said he has dyslexia. john travolta has had extensive scientology "study training" — part of the courses theybpay alot of money for that supposedly makes scientology people superior to the everyone. superior? omg just compare mr. travolta to the sea of shining stars around him. is that what scientology does to its "celebrities"? omg what has happened to the spark he once had? he looked embalmed too. and that intro butchering of a name??? inexcusbale.

    Regardless of what someone's religion is,it is incredibly hypocritical for Hollywood to make fun of anyone with a learning disability. Children are bullied daily in school for this. Hollywood is constantly on a soapbox preaching against bullying and the damage it causes. Perhaps they need to step down and take a look in their own backyard.

    Re: Teresa kirby – He does not have one. He's being made fun of for being disrespectful, lazy, and a fuck-up of the one very easy job he had that evening.

    Maybe he was worried about being gay, being bald, being a member of a crackpot cult that does dirt to people, being fat, having a sham marriage or something else that would get him off his game.
