But it looks like putting on that darn Chewbacca mask is still paying off BIG TIME — because Payne just received full scholarships at a Florida university for her entire family!

Scripps National Spelling Bee Twitter Account Owned This Troll So Bad He Quit Social Media! See Their P-E-R-F-E-C-T Response!

Filed under: TwitterFunnyEducationalViral: News

no title

Oh, the irony!

You can't be a Twitter troll these days without knowing what you're getting into first.

That's what user Kyle Chapman learned the hard way when he tried to make fun of the Scripps National Spelling Bee… WITHOUT checking his tweet for any mistakes.

During Thursday's broadcast (where Jairam Hathwar and Nihar Janga were eventually declared co-champions), Chapman decided to rag on the event for using a "Comfort Couch" — which is where the kid contestants go to sit and collect themselves after they lost.

The user made fun of the couch because he thought it was encouraging the contestants to lose, not understanding the couch is there to provide a brief moment of comfort in a high pressure situation for those kids who probably had stress dreams about this competition for months.

But in his attempt to blast the competition, the troll made one crucial error — a GRAMMATICAL error — and the NSB's official Twitter account swiftly shut him down:

Rashida Jones is one smart cookie!

Even though the Angie Tribeca star graduated from Harvard University back in 1997, she has still been discouraged from speaking her mind about politics because she's a mere "stupid celebrity."

But when the actress returned to her alma mater to guest speak at the class of 2016's Class Day celebration — she made it clear she wasn't holding back.

Kris Jenner Is The New Face Of A Very Shady Business School — Get All The Icky Deets HERE!

no title

Yikes! Is Kris Jenner pulling her own Donald Trump University?

According to an expose via The Daily Beast, Kris has become the official spokesperson and chairman of the board for Legacy Business School, an institution the site jokingly refers to as a shady European diploma mill. Apparently the school has an extremely SHADY past full of financial issues and deceit.

Video: Kardashian Kandles!

Here's the deal — Legacy Business School is basically a rebranded institution formerly known as The European School of Economics and later the International School of New York. The CEO, a former pop star named Elio D'Anna, had to rename the school after numerous complaints to the New York State Education Department came to light.

Essentially, the school is a for-profit organization that charges a whopping $105K a year for a NON-DEGREE. To top it off, the institution was sued many times for unpaid debts to teachers and other employees.

How gross! We can barely believe this situation!

While Elio first opened campuses across Europe, he eventually decided to expand to America in 2006. The problem is, he never got the okay to run an official campus.

To make the situation even fishier,

Angelina Jolie-Pitt is making Hollywood and the rest of us look bad!

In a recent statement, Ms. Jolie-Pitt officially revealed her latest role as visiting professor at the esteemed London School of Economics. The move is just one of the many prestigious endeavors Angie has taken on over the years as a global activist and charity enthusiast.

While A.J. won't be teaching full-time, she'll act as a visiting professor for the school's masters course on women, peace and security for the 2016-2017 school year. This means the momma will give occasional lectures, attend workshops and public events, and also help out with research projects.

Gushing over her new job, the actress divulged:

"I am very encouraged by the creation of this master's programme. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women's rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict. I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations."

So exciting! Not to mention the position couldn't come at a better time now that husband Brad Pitt is currently filming close by. It's no surprise the couple decided to make London their home for the time being!

What's especially exciting about the activist's new gig is that it's the first program of it's kind. Angelina and Britain's former foreign secretary William Hauge first launched the initiative last year.

Congrats on your new job, Angie!
