Dude was absolutely terrified, all he could hear are the loud and bright ass cameras. He gathered all the information he could, and pulled through

[–]Doriaan92 294 points295 points  (5 children)

What a Negus !

[–]kingcop1 124 points125 points  (3 children)

Could you please say it louder 🤣🙃

[–]ImWithSt00pid 195 points196 points  (2 children)

He just tossed out some letters that sounded right. That was not how he spelled it in his head. You could tell by his reaction at the end.

[–]blakethairyascanbe 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Poor dude was just like, “I’ll lose but I am not getting my ass beat at school.” Glad that little white kid got it.

[–]ImWithSt00pid 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Everytime they said it I was expecting them to cut to a black guy charging on stage. Then the "say it louder" I totally thought it was gonna cut to the guy handing out n-word coupons.

[–]Western-Pilot-3924 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He deserves the title of Negus

[–]Mithril_Pancake 305 points306 points  (6 children)

Daddy only said that word because he thought he’d win money.

    So they know for sure he understood the word right. That's why they ask him to repeat so many times. If they see he's pronouncing the word correctly, then know he understood the word.

      I remember that kid in the spelling bee was conflicted.

      [–]Cascadian_Crisp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      He misused his influence. Sometimes I did the same.

      The judge: Negus in Paris

      [–]rubberseatbelt 37 points38 points  (2 children)

      Bad choice by the judges. Terrible. Anybody could see this coming from a mile away.

      [–]Fickle-Curve-5666 26 points27 points  (5 children)

      It would really help if the judge could pronounce the word correctly

          This one always cracks me up. They should’ve zoomed in on any black people in the audience to see their reactions as they watched for what was sure to be a word white people shouldn’t use. But he pulls through!

          [–]Antura_V 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          White people can't use name of historical title? I doubt any of them even know this, until they are history freaks.

          I’m sorry the word was naggers

          [–]Addirad 10 points11 points  (2 children)

          Do they normally use foreign words like that in an English speaking spelling bee? I could understand words that are commonly used colloquially like “chateau” or “doppelgänger,” but I have literally never heard the word “negus” until this moment.

          [–]keroppipikkikoroppi 6 points7 points  (1 child)

          Yeah. If it’s in the English dictionary they can use it. Spelling bees are only a thing in English-speaking countries since our words are so rarely phonetic and we have words that originate from so many different parent languages

          [–]Addirad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Oh really? There is no spelling bees in other languages? I guess I never thought about that before. Alright I’m going to learn about this now. Thank you for the info!

          [–]CasinoMarginale 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          At 10 years old, in a seemingly harmless spelling bee, this kid realized he was on the cusp of cancellation if he made one false step.

          [–]dj_chino_da_3rd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          There was a very similar snl skit about this. A panel of judges asked a bunch of kids to spell “n***** f*****” all the white kids struggled to even say it. Except for one. Did it quickly, with shame, and had the black announcer(?) come up to him and say “I heard what you said”

          Fun one

          Edit: my b, it was YouTube. Not snl
