Twitter Couldn’t Help But Roast This Thirsty Conservative Guy’s Tweet About A ’22-Year-Old Girl’ ?

Being a young, thirsty, conservative man in New York City must be rough sometimes. The city is known for being home to a more liberal and openminded crowd but, hey, if you can’t find love in a city full of millions of people … you know what they say.

Elliot Kaufman is a writer and self-proclaimed conservative. He labeled himself in his Twitter bio with a French literary term “enfant du siècle” – which translates to “child of the century.”

You know how some people have no idea how right they are? Yeah, he’s one of them and, thanks to a now-deleted tweet that weirdly combined his thirst with his desire to shame people, Twitter hasn’t stopped talking about it.

Let’s set the stage. Elliot, an intellectual, was riding the subway reading a biography. He noticed a beautiful young woman approaching … we’ll let him take it from there. 

 

Rather than figure she had a valid reason not to know who Winston Churchill was — like maybe she’s not American or from the UK, or maybe political history isn’t one of her passions, or maybe she actually knew and was trying to draw him deeper into a conversation — he opted to hop on Twitter and dramatically post the encounter. Since he’d been waiting his entire life for that moment, and the attractive 22-year-old clearly “ruined” it by not knowing who Winston Churchill was, Twitter decided to grant his wish and give him his moment.

Oh, wait, no they didn’t. They scoured his tweets and found that he has a history of being hyper-thirsty, mega-judgy, elitist, and condescending. They also found that he’s an alumni interviewer for an Ivy League university that has had some issues with sexual assault. In addition, they discovered he has pretty openly shared his doubts about women who report sexual assault. Oh, and he posts pictures of “the perfect spot to think of sex without the law” … we have no idea which set of emojis would properly convey the amount of cringe that gives us.

Basically, Elliot’s Twitter doesn’t paint the best picture. 

 

And so, as is customary, the traditional roasting began. His tweet became a meme dedicated to his particular brand of awkward, off-putting, elitism. Elliotism, if you will… 

Elliot has blocked some of the people memeing his now-deleted tweet, but that doesn’t mean he’s bothered. Someone pointed out to him that he was a meme now and he dismissed it, responding that he was only a meme “among people who take their cues from rich kid socialists.” He followed it up with a puke emoji.

Long story short, Twitter shows no mercy! So post with caution because things get very “eat the rich” very fast.

Erica is the consummate cool-kid. She’s so cool that she’s been talked about in magazines, on blogs and on the radio after losing her left eye because of a piece of glitter. She is still actively mourning the passing of Prince and hopes to one day do an all-iguana remake of Graffiti Bridge since iguanas are plentiful near her home in South Florida. She has yet to find one that can really nail the “ahhhyayayeaheaheah” that Tevin Campbell does in Round and Round, and everyone knows the music is the important part of any Prince film. She’s a mother, singer, writer and (if the internet is to be believed - which we all know it is) a Nigerian socialite mid-ranking member of the Illuminati. She prides herself on being the most popular one-eyed rock star under 5 ft tall in pretty much any room she walks into.
