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:
AH-Mazing! (We know it’s spelled *amazing, btw├óΓé¼┬ª)
And to put the icing on the cake, this clap back was so effective, the troll deactivated his Twitter account!
After this victory, the internet was all about it — though some of the positive responses contained spelling mistakes in themselves. Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
