I thought it was embarrassing when I met Keanu Reeves once and I said 'Hi, Neo', but this is way worse. Holly Holm actually asked Beyoncé for her name. Gasp.

Last week, Holly Holm, UFC fighter who de-throned Ronda Rousey in a powerhouse fight, attended a VIP boxing match viewing party for the Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto fight in Las Vegas, hosted by Bee and Jay Z. "I meet Jay Z and he says, 'This is my wife,' and I'm like, 'Oh hi, what's your name?' because that's what you do when I meet someone's wife," Holly told Albuquerque's KRQE. "And as I'm shaking her hand I'm thinking, 'Why did I just say that? Why did I just say that to Beyoncé?'"

Holly said she was so embarrassed, she couldn't focus on continuing the conversation. "And I literally have to interrupt him, I'm like, 'I'm really sorry,' " she told KRQE. "And I go back to Beyoncé, and I'm like, 'Beyoncé, like, I can't believe I just did that.' Yeah, she goes, 'Oh, no it's fine.' I'm like, 'No, like, I really, really – it's like such an honor to meet you.'"

We can't imagine how mortified she must've been. Most of us would either faint or start screaming like a rabid squirrel upon meeting someone as magnificently famous as Beyoncé. It definitely gives 'Say My Name' a whole new meaning.
