I've decided not to actually respond to this person's comment in response to everyone freaking out upon learning that Jessica Williams is only 24 because I'm pretty sure they mean well, but I REALLY REALLY WANT TO. Instead I will share my response with you, my Groupthink friends, and get it out of my system.


Dear Everyone:

At some point you will admire people that are younger than you. It happens because you are not dead.

You are not a failure. You do not need to re-examine your life.

Desired Response:

Dear (commenter):

At some point you will encounter a person making jokes on the internet. They may exaggerate or invent things in order to make their statement more humorous.

It is called hyperbole. You may need to re-examine your reading comprehension skills.

I'm mean :-/
