It’s ‘I before E, except after C.’

Despite knowing many keys to success, DJ Khaled has yet to master spelling.

Case in point? The fact that he’s not quite sure how to spell Justin Bieber‘s last name.

Though he’s called Bieber his “brother” in various interviews, Snapchat star and record producer DJ Khaled misspelled Bieber’s name on a recent Snapchat announcing his Billboard Music Awards appearance, to much chagrin.

While he did get the username correct in the subsequent Instagram post, the Snapchat text is unalterable, and fans aren’t letting him forget it.

Congratulations, Khaled. You just played yourself.
