White Nationalist Richard Spencer Tried To Troll Aziz Ansari, Got Obliterated By Twitter For His Effort

By 01.23.17

While hosting Saturday Night Live this past, uh Saturday, Aziz Ansari delivered an opening monologue which took aim at a number of political topics.

You can watch the whole thing above, it’s quite good, and one of the topics Ansari hit on (pun interned as you will see) was the alt-right movement…

“The problem is, there’s a new group… I’m talking about these people that, as soon as Trump won, they’re like, ‘We don’t have to pretend like we’re not racist anymore! We don’t have to pretend anymore! We can be racist again! Whoo! You know who I’m talking about. There’s like this new lower-case K.K.K. movement that started. This kind of casual white supremacy.”

Afterwards, White Nationalist Richard Spencer thought it would be funny to try to troll Ansari with a tweet saying, “It seems like we really triggered you.”

Considering that on Friday Spencer got punched in the face on live TV at A Trump protest, some people on Twitter thought that perhaps it was he who had, in fact, been “triggered.”

And by some people, I mean, dozens upon dozens upon dozens… and they all had one VERY common theme.
