There's a entertainment news anchor (he's white) on one of the local TV stations here in New York (can't think of his name) who constantly refers to him as Moss Def... notice the extra "S" in Moss. I always make a note to myself in the moment to write to the station instructing them on the proper pronounciation of the name, but then I forget to do so, until the next time it happens. You'd think anyone living and working in media in New York would be familiar, or that someone at the station (I'm sure there's at least one person who's heard of Moss, I mean Mos Def) would tell this dude that it's Mos, not Moss.

Ok, so, it's not like he's talked about very often over here, but I've been witness to the error at least thrice in as many months.
