The long-running gag about supermodels being dumb is something that can be mean-spirited at times. While most of the times we can tell if a person is trying to make a joke or not, internet trolls are people that don’t aim for such. We are all very familiar with such trolls. And we all know why they go to the keyboards is. Nothing that they do is supposed to be “just fun.”
The Victoria’s Secret model and software engineer Lyndsey Scott just had a meet up with a few trolls. While the rest of the world knows of Scott as a well-known supermodel for numerous prestigious brands, many were surprised to know that she had a background in software engineering and coding in particular. Where we can understand as to why people were surprised, let’s face it not a lot of people would related software engineering with modeling. But when you look as beautiful as Lyndsey Scott, you know you are going to get the attention of the people over at the fashion side of things.
Now as she gained popularity, it was only natural that people started to look more into the life of their modeling idol. Keep in mind that Lyndsey is first ever African American woman to get a Calvin Klein exclusive deal, so she is quite successful.
So, with more information about her personal life coming out people were introduced to the more technical side. Not only is Lyndsey an expert in coding in Python, C++, Java, MIPS, and Objective-C. But she has her own website where she has completed numerous professional projects.
However, that is where the trolls came in. While most people were quite interested to know more about her, the trolls were busy making the whole “Dumb Model” joke.
Even with just a single comment, you can see where this is going. [Inserted: ,]This individual obviously doesn’t even know any details about Scoot and just decided to leave a quick, quote on quote, witty remark. As it would make them feel somewhat important.
Doubting anyone on the basis of their looks is one thing but not even trying to do a little bit of research really shows what kind of people they are. One quick google sear would’ve been more than enough to lay their doubts to rest but no, that would’ve taken too long, and the joke wouldn’t have been relevant than.
But, one thing that the trolls didn’t count on was Scott giving them a backhand.
Not only did he make it clear that she found the trolls to be highly immature, but she also highlighted the hostility that the trolls were throwing her way only because of her looks. In other words ‘jealousy,” all the trolls reflected a stench of jealousy towards her.
