Ruby ActiveRecord Basics Validation Errors 2

Customer rails validator not working

I have followed the code EXACTLY from the lesson and could not get it to work properly in my own app OR in the quiz. Here is the code and it says it is wrong. Not sure why

 class Contact < ActiveRecord::Base
   validate :name_is_evil

   def name_is_evil
     if last_name.include?("evil")
       self.errors.add(:last_name, " is evil")
