The Internet is full of people who are so-called experts and think they know everything. These people just argue with everyone and anyone and think they know better. Of course, some of them are actually experts and are very knowledgeable, but others are people who are full of themselves and know nothing.
They need to know that if you want to be dumb enough to tell off someone who turns out to be an expert in their field, whether it’s science or politics or business or urban planning or whatever, you’re going to get owned, someone will screenshot it, and it will end up all over the place, like in this gallery, for example. So, don’t be like the people in this gallery. Do your homework before you look extremely silly in front of millions of people on the Internet.
You can never be too sure who you’re talking to, so it’s best just to be ultra respectful and understanding about where people are coming from.
For example, if you work at a radio station and you don’t know who Annie Lennox is, maybe don’t email her.
She’s, um, a superstar, and this guy wants to “give her a chance.” This is insanity!
This is so cringeworthy! This person is basically like, “How could you, a woman, possibly be a professor with her own lab?” In 2018.
The real Matilda
This poor girl working concessions didn’t realize that she was talking to the real live actress who played the title character in her supposedly favorite movie!
A paper as evidence
This is totally bonkers. Mansplaining is among the most common sexist microaggressions out there. I don’t know a woman who hasn’t dealt with it.
The real Tony Hawk
Tony Hawk has a bunch of similar stories on his Twitter. Apparently, he’s hard to recognize in real life (especially because the name on his ID is “Anthony”).
“Learn some actual science”
I just love when people can throw their advanced degrees in the faces of their detractors. That’s pretty much why you get a Ph.D., to begin with, right?
I suppose when you’re the CEO of the company, you have some authority over the name of the company.
Ugh, that winky face is so disgusting. It’s just like a man to be like, “Maybe if you understood…” She understands quite well, thank you very much.
This poor lady had no idea that she was talking to an actual Olympic swimmer. What a silly conversation. She didn’t even grasp it after Lizzie was like, “I WENT TO THE OLYMPICS.”
Yup, that’s a picture of Lewis Black watching people take a picture with a poster with a picture of Lewis Black. Inception!
This person really just tried to explain Snape’s character to J. K. Rowling, who literally created him. Out of thin air. Snape is hers.
These rude gentlemen may have just blown the biggest career opportunity they’d ever have because C.B. Cebulski just so happens to be a talent scout for Marvel Comics.
Shame on you
First of all, how and why would this person claim to be noticing a pattern if she wasn’t professionally involved in the area?! Dudes are such dudes.
Gotta love when the actor calls out the person who so flippantly disregarded their actual name. Like, come on now! It’s called Google.
Write a book
Another man giving unsolicited advice to a woman who is way more qualified than he is to speak on a subject. Get a life, Greg!
This person spoke very eloquently about this issue in the top comment. Why would you disparage them? Nub_Zar got what they deserved.
I would think Jay Rodriguez’s dad would know a thing or two about his career. I love that he’s on Twitter defending his son’s honor.
This thing about this exchange is that Chris O’Donnell didn’t play Green Arrow.
…Stephen Amell did.
This is totally bonkers.
But I have another question: Why was Jo Sharp writing a paper about her own work?
Wow. This is beyond.
Newsflash: Weeeee stole this country. This Navajo congressman’s family is more legal than those Trump supporters, I can tell you that.
Laser rust remover
Ah yes, the Internet. I can always count on your for heated discussions about the price of industrial laser rust remover. What would I do without you?
World War II
“Kimberly” is absolutely the best name to be able to say when you are about to own someone so hard for being ignorant. It just works so well.
Hilarious. They’re making fun of Natalie Portman for being a “hipster” who “probably hasn’t even seen all the movies,” but she was in Star Wars.
“How would you know?”
Be careful who you pose this question to. They could come up with a very complete and thorough answer to which you will have no good reply.
In her Tinder bio it says she writes for Marvel Comics, and still, this dude is like, “Yeah but are you a real fan?” No, she’s not. It’s literally her job.
Woody or Woody
This might be the best note I’ve ever seen someone write in a book. Maybe this person genuinely wanted Woody Harrelson’s autograph but only had this Woody Allen book on them.
“Got any sources?”
Well, that very thorough explanation of their expertise as well as the sources they provide shut that person up quickly, didn’t it?
Yeah, I don’t think this guy is a bandwagon fan.
You see…he’s a player on the team of which he speaks.
Snap a pic
Look, even famous people are people, so they can be asked to snap a picture. I hope they realized what they did and took a pic with her after, though.
Hm, it seems to be that the prime minister of Malta might have some pretty reliable sources. I would probably just trust what he says.
The real Mr. Bean
Rowan Atkinson is a pretty…distinct looking fellow. I would like to think that if I saw him walking down the street, I would recognize him.
Sorry, but a clinical aromatherapist (whatever that is) does not out-rank an actual “medical professional,” whether a doctor, a nurse, or someone who works reception in a doctor’s office.
Professional dog behaviorist for the win!! Pit bulls are such sweet animals. Retrievers and labs can actually naturally be really crazy. Pit bulls are so much better than their reputation.
Just because she’s young and hip and knows how to upload a video onto YouTube doesn’t mean she didn’t actually go to school for the stuff she’s talking about. Lesson learned.
Not only did this guy totally insult the former spokesman for the Democratic Party, but he also thought it was called the Democrat Party. What world is this man living in?
And that’s what you get if you try to play the owner of the arcade. Also, $5 an hour is very reasonable!!! Just pay it!
Let me list the ways
This snooty person “found it interesting” that this person would comment on security clearances as if they were an expert until the person clearly stated three different ways in which they were an expert.
Thanks for the input
Poor police work
When a retired cop calls out poor police work, believe them.
