President Joe Biden butchered the name of a man killed by Memphis Police Department officers in Tuesday’s State of the Union speech.

Biden referred to Tyre Nichols as “Tyler Nichols” in the speech, bringing up the example of a black Tennessee man who was beaten to death by five black police officers in order to push police reform.
