John Travolta continued on his apology tour to Idina Menzel this week by sending the "Frozen" star flowers to make up for flubbing her name at the Academy Awards earlier this month.

Travolta has been trying to make amends for blowing Menzel's name during the live Oscar broadcast on March 2, introducing her as "Adele Dazeem." The former "Grease" star and two-time Academy Award nominee reportedly sent the flowers Wednesday to the set of Menzel's new Broadway musical "If/Then" at New York's Richard Rogers Theatre, E! Online reported.

"He sent her a big, gorgeous bouquet of flowers to her dressing room. It was huge. It was his apology to her," a source told E! Online.

Social media exploded earlier this month after the flub heard 'round the world. In addition to the slew of snarky tweets, one person even created a "Travoltify" name generator, reported.

Menzel was at the awards ceremony to perform the "Frozen" theme song "Let It Go," which later collected the award for Best Original Song.

Travolta publicly apologized for the incident several days later.

"I've been beating myself up all day," he said in a statement. "Then I thought . . . what would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!' Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy 'Frozen' took home two Oscars Sunday night!"

A source told E! Online that Menzel actually laughed about the name snafu and gave Travolta a hug after performing the song.

"She laughed it off," the source said. "She thought it was so funny. She was like, 'What are you going to do?' The Oscars were a dream come true for Idina. She wasn't going to let anything get in the way of that."
