Some Serious Burning Went Down at Last Night’s National Spelling Bee!
Remember the days when the National Spelling Bee was just a few kids trying to spell and being pretty awesome to each other over their shared love of words?
Well those days are dead and gone, and last night’s Scripps National Spelling Bee proves it. In the final showdown between 13-year-old Jairam Hathwar and 11-year-old Nihar Janga, things got pretty heated, but only on one side.
While Jairam Hathwar was pretty damn courteous, Nihar Janga was anything but:
Even after the two tied, you can see in the video above that Janga ignored Hathwar’s multiple attempts to give him a high five and even lifted the trophy out of the poor kids reach.
And that’s not the end of it! The Scripps Spelling Bee twitter account must have been vibing off Janga because the account spent the better part of the evening trolling users with grammar edits!
The Spelling Bee has gotten pretty damn salty!
