University of Maryland computer science professor Jen Golbeck tried to tweet a basic gripe about her field of expertise on Tuesday, forgetting that it's never safe to express any kind of opinion on the internet.
Sometimes I just want to punch java in the face.— Jen Golbeck (@jengolbeck) October 4, 2016
Of course, some random dude was waiting, hunched over his keyboard, to mansplain her own business to her.
@jengolbeck learn it and you'll never want to use anything else ;)— Ludovic Reenaers (@LReenaers) October 4, 2016
So Golbeck rolled her eyes at the clown, putting him on blast in front of the entire internet.
Guys. I can't tell you how frustrating shit like this is. Especially having to deal with comments like this over and over and over… pic.twitter.com/LmYN1vzdUD— Jen Golbeck (@jengolbeck) October 4, 2016
Professor Golbeck's tweet has gone viral, because nobody can believe this dude actually assumed a computer science professor didn't know Java. (That's basic stuff, man.) Her tweet has been retweeted over 8,000 times, and received more than 17,000 favorites.
