Ellen DeGeneres Show no more in trouble as 'i' can be pronounced in several ways

ANI  |  Washington D.C. [USA] 

A plea of a woman, who sued the 'Show' producers in June, for wrong pronunciation of real estate agent Titi Pierce's name, has been ruled out.

According to a TMZ.com report, the case was ruled out as according to the judge, there was nothing untoward about DeGeneres poking fun at realtor Titi Pierce's name, which she pronounced as "Titty," reports TMZ.com.

For the unversed, the issue began when the host, during a segment called "What's Wrong with These Signs?", pronounced real estate agent Titi Pierce's name like "titty" instead of "Tee Tee", has been ruled out.

According to the document, "The letter 'i' in the English language can be pronounced in several ways. While Titi chooses to pronounce her name with "e," there is nothing demonstrably false in pronouncing it with "i" as DeGeneres did.
