Derek the UConn RA Fires Back

Tuesday April 8th, 2014


The UConn RA who banned his floor from having fun during their school's NCAA championship game victory has fired back in another email, tweeted by a different student under his care.

Here, Derek makes the classic mistake of writing a really defensive note to prove how chill he really is. Among his transparent excuses: "it was sarcasm," "it's a Seinfeld reference you didn't get," and "you just don't get my sense of humor."

I'm guessing at the last minute he deleted a line about how he "actually thought the tweet was really funny, but totally uncalled for."
