This happens because Spacy learns from the contextual structure of the sentence. It considers the surrounding words of the entities and assumes whether it is a person, organization or a place. Let us take an example

Here , ‘Anwarvic’ is used in three cases in three ways which is why Spacy predicted three different types of entities. In the last case, ‘awesome’ is used before the entity which is a generic adjective which describes almost anything. This is why Spacy is confused in the last case.
