Leonardo DiCaprio Called Domhnall Gleeson 'Dumble' And Twitter Responded Brilliantly
"I hope Leo doesn't win an Oscar purely because he pronounced Domhnall Gleeson 'Dumble Gleeson'"
So Leonardo DiCaprio did a sound thing and gave Domhnall Gleeson a shout out at the SAG Awards on Saturday night when accepting an award – except he pronounced his name 'Dumble' (watch the cringeworthy moment here).
After yet another crime against Irish names took place in Hollywood, Twitter was quick to react to the outrage.
And react brilliantly.

Oh Hollywood, will you ever wrap your tongues around Irish names?
