Scarlett Moffatt skewers troll as she flaunts academic qualifications
Scarlett Moffatt has faced down a troll who questioned her academic reputation.
As teenagers across the country received their GCSE results, Moffatt joked on Twitter that anyone worried should remember that US rapper Pitbull “rhymed Kodak with Kodak and he is a millionaire”.
One follower hit out at the I’m A Celebrity champion and former Gogglebox star, labelling her “brain dead”.
Joshua Hodges (@OfficialJoshyH) wrote: “And remember Scarlett Moffat made money by watching tv on tv. Anyone can be successful no matter how brain dead.”
Moffatt silenced the troll as she flaunted her 13 GCSEs, three A-levels and university degree.
The presenter wrote: “I have 13 A*-C GCSEs, 3 A levels and a 2:1 bachelors degree mate. But if you work hard & be kind you can achieve anything.”
Fans loved the response, with one posting she had “battered” Hodges.
@Kirsty Bright (@Kirstybright5) wrote: “Yessss Scarlett!!. Set them straight, why do people feel the need to have a go for no reason? Oh yeah jealously.”
Jennifer Thompson (@JennThomp79) posted: “You tell em Scarlett. There was no need for him to be that rude.”
Phil Tilston (@Philtilston) tweeted: “Bound to appear on a “30 Times Twitter Trolls Got Owned” list in the not-too-distant future.”
