    Howard pronounces Manti Te'o as Mantee Teeyo and no one corrected him.

    She got it right even though she should be a smudge more guttural in the pronunciation of the "c".

    It is correct. But the "c" in cutter is a more guttural sound.

    The guttural sound in American English is very uncommon so it's understandable when Americans don't pronounce it gutturally.

    Sounds like "gutter" when pronounced properly.
    She was close but an asshole about it, as usual .
