Los Angeles:

After the “Creed” team won big at NAACP Image Awards, Sylvester Stallone took to Instagram to apologise for a few spelling errors he made in his victory post.

The 69-year-old “Rocky” star congratulated “Creed” co-star Michael B Jordan on winning the event’s top honours, Entertainer of the Year, and director Ryan Coogler for taking home two awards, reported Variety.

“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 along with a photo of himself presenting the film at the ceremony.

Two hours after the initial celebratory post, Stallone apologised for is spelling mistakes.

“Sorry for the miss spelling of NAACP and Jordan.  Confidentially, besides everything else, I am slightly dyslexic,” Stallone wrote.

This is not the first apology Stallone has issued to Jordan this awards season. He also repented for neglecting to thank Jordan and Coogler in his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, at which he took home the statue for best supporting actor.

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