American Living In UK Angers Brits With Bizarre Way Of Saying Marmite

A US woman who triggered Brits with her pronunciation of Caffè Nero is on the wind up again, this time with her butchery of the pronunciation of beloved spread Marmite.


You might have taken it too far this time, pal.

TikTok user Reagan Yorke, who posts under @reaganxo, has recently moved from Los Angeles to London and has been entertaining her followers with updates about the things she finds odd about life in the UK.

Amongst the things she's been left baffled by is towel warmers, kettles and the fact that us Brit's don't tend to have outdoor pools - wait until she lives through her first British summer and she might see why.

But she's really managed to ruffle a few feathers with her latest clip in which she pronounces Marmite as 'Marmeet'.

One follower wrote: "Mar meat - I'm sorry marMITE."

Someone else said: "Literally though, it's not hard to pronounce."

While a third commented: "Mar meat? WHAT?"

Someone else asked: "Did she say mAr MEet?"

Another said: "Mar-meet? OK she's doing it on purpose now." I think you might be onto something there...

Reagan previously sparked outrage with her clips in which she reviews UK coffee shop chains including Caffè Nero, which she pronounced: "Caffè Naroooo."

Much like the whole Marmite/Marmeet thing, her followers were not impressed, with one posting: "Noooo the way that you pronounced 'Nero' actually made me sick.

A second asked: "Why did she say naroo?"

While a third commenter posted: "I'm sorry. CAFFEE NAROO?! Nah. Not only are you filming strangers in the U.K. but you're also slandering our cafes."

She caused further outrage by describing the coffee chain as the 'UK's version of Dunkin' Donuts', seemingly unaware of the fact that the UK has several branches of the doughnut shop, including one in London where Reagan lives.

Reagan told her followers: "Everyone keeps telling me this is basically like the UK's version of Dunkin'"

To which one person pointed out: "The UK's version of Dunkin'... is Dunkin'."

While someone else suggested: "You could have just gone to Dunkin' in the UK."

Fair point.
