Yes, the proverbial mic is dropped indeed!

After Jon Stewart announced his impending retirement, the Twitterverse reacted by naming current Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams as a potential successor.

While Jessica was thankful and flattered, she tweeted that she felt "extremely under-qualified for the job" because she was only 25-years-old:

That's when Ester Bloom of The Billfold wrote a piece in response that accused Jessica of suffering from…

"Imposter Syndrome, a well-documented phenomenon in which men look at their abilities [versus] the requirements of a job posting and round up, whereas women do the same and round down, calling themselves 'unqualified.'"

We personally know that Jessica is as fearless as she is funny. She's not a victim of her own decision.

Ester then called Jessica's claim of being "under-qualified" "bullsh*t" and that all she needed was a "pep talk."

Once again, Ester decided to belittle Jessica's personal career decision as some sort of weakness rather than call what it was: her own career choice.

Well, Jessica had none of this, rightfully so.

Here's the Twitter back and forth between Jessica and Ester:

Do you think Ester's apology was enough?
