Gawker Explainer: Names in the News

Because apparently none of you people can read without also moving your lips, we hear your pleas and provide this assistance:

• Chris Sullen-trop. (That's "trop" like "drop.)
• Ben-wah Den-eh-zay Lewis.

And while we're at it:


• Yann When-er.
• Corey Seek-ah. (And he's a dude.)
• Mayor Ro-shan.


And, oddly, one of those gentlemen is even straight.
