The issue isn't really that he had no clue who Mandela was. While that is crazy to think, not totally unbelievable as a lot of these guys would have been totally focused on their crafts from a very young age...spending little to no time staying up on current events.
So, he'd get a pass from me for not knowing. The issue I have is that he was attending a red carpet type event honoring an individual....you'd think he'd take a few minutes to understand the guy he was going to honor. On top of that, he made it worse by trying to make something up to avoid embarrassment.
