Isn’t it amazing how some people just can’t seem to mind their own business? Here are some of the best internet clapbacks you can use in times of trouble.
Welcome to the Internet: a place where hot-piping tea is always served. Nowadays, being self-aware is one thing, but being straight up obsessed with drama is another. While call-out culture demands accountability, there are instances when things are just blown out of proportion. Opinions are subjective, however we forget public figures, personalities, and celebrities have feelings, too. And when patience is running thin, obviously as humans, it’s time to clapback. By definition, it’s a “quick, sharp, and effective response to criticism” according to Merriam Webster. These celebrities? They’re just like us. They came, they saw, they clapped back.
