Grammar Nazi Tries To School Mark Hamill Over Grammar On Twitter, Regrets It Immediately

As a paid-up member of the grammar nazi club, I know all too well that trivial, yet nagging feeling of disdain one gets when seeing a native English speaker mangling basic words and sentences online.

Yes, bad grammar is pathetic. Annoying too! But a grammar nazi should at least know when to pick their battles, and provoke people with persnickety English grammar corrections only when absolutely sure that they are correct themselves. Otherwise, the grammar nazi ends up looking like a complete ass, much to everyone else’s delight.

Enter the hero of the day, Luke Skywalker himself. Not content with becoming one of the greatest Jedi the galaxy has ever known, Skywalker, AKA Mark Hamill, also takes down grammar nazis in his spare time. What a guy!

After shooting off an adorable tweet about his Star Wars cast colleague Kelly Marie Tran, full of love and praise for her performance in the film, the grammar nazi struck with the classic your/you’re correction. Drama! The popular actor had the best comeback up his sleeve however and handled it like an absolute pro. This began a chain reaction of grammar geeking-out that makes for entertaining reading, grammar nazi or not!

Scroll down below to see the funny tweets, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Mark Hamill took to Twitter to give a shout out to the new Star Wars star Kelly Marie Tran

But the internet wouldn’t be the internet if it didn’t register every little slip you make

Yet Hamill was quick to come up with a slick comeback

Only to be topped by the guys at Merriam-Webster dictionary

Who then, of course, were corrected as well

That was not a grammar nazi. Grammar nazis may be annoying but they actually know the grammar rules. If someone corrects the grammar wrong that person is not a grammar nazi.

Grammar corrections have their place when it really matters. But people should be wary of correcting others on social media forums - you just don't know if the person you are correcting perhaps has dyslexia or another learning difference which would mean they are doing their very best. Correcting them when it really doesn't matter could do so much damage to their self esteem and ability to continue communicating

As a licensed English teacher, I must say that you are absolutely correct! Social posting is _usually_ first draft/rough draft writing. Being an uptight responder to casual posts says more about the corrector than the corrected.
