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. Similarly, the speaker’s last statement–“come across too harsh…ly”–would actually be incorrect. “Come across” links the subject to the adjective “harsh.”
