Least serious international incident of all time

Seeing as how I have the sense of humor of a ten-tear-old, I can see where this guy was coming from:
A New Zealand television host has quit after sparking a diplomatic row when he ridiculed the name of Sheila Dikshit, the chief minister of the Indian capital, New Delhi.

Television station TVNZ came under heavy criticism after its "Breakfast" show host Paul Henry mispronounced Dikshit, despite being told by the lead anchor that it is pronounced "Dixit."
As someone whose name isn't pronounced the way it's spelled, I can understand how frustrating that can be, but COME ON, PEOPLE!!!
