Newly Coined Word?

My hard copy of Korea Herald for Wednesday the eleventh of October (2017) has Kate Winslet stating, with respect to the recent Harvey Weinstein scandals:
"I had hoped that these kinds of stories were just made up rumors, maybe we have all been naeurove."
Naeurove? What kind of word is that? Is it even a word? Does it belong to the set of all words having no plausible meaning? I figure this is some sort of computer glitch, but what would the original word be? Naïve?

I suspect you're right: it's supposed to be "naïve." What on Earth happened?

We're all just too naeurove to understand.

This scandal has been common knowledge in the entertainment scene for decades. and a topic for jokes. No one "knew" until it was exposed. The man in a contributor of funds to the liberal establishment.

Correction....The man is/has been a contributor of funds to the liberal establishment, especially to the Democratic candidates.

The HTML for ï is ampersand iuml semicolon; for € it is ampersand euro semicolon; and someone unused to diacritics got in a tiz?

I do think the dieresis played a role in someone's confusion.
