Al Sharpton Misspells Famous Aretha Franklin Song: ‘R-E-S-P-I-C-T’

Rev. Al Sharpton accidentally botched the spelling of Aretha Franklin’s famous song “Respect” while paying tribute to the late singer during his MSNBC show on Sunday.

WATCH:

Sharpton, the host of “PoliticsNation,” was criticizing President Donald Trump for calling former White House staffer and “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman a “dog,” asserting that “sometimes the dog bites back.”

“I think you might’ve learned the lesson this week, sometimes the dog bites back with a book deal,” Sharpton said.

Sharpton closed the segment by quoting perhaps Franklin’s most well-known song, 1967’s “Respect,” but he didn’t echo Franklin’s correct spelling of the song’s title.

Rather than reciting ‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,’ Sharpton slipped an ‘I’ into the tail end of the word.

“So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you,” Sharpton said proudly.
