Sometimes saying words correctly is just too difficult . . . so we add the alternate pronunciation to the dictionary.
Good except you can and most likely would “feel bad” about something, not “feel badly.” “Feel” is a linking verb and modifies the subject with the adjective “bad.” To feel badly would imply that someone is feeling faultily, that the act of feeling for the subject is faulty.
