Merriam-Webster had the perfect response for internet trolls after the 'Dr. Who' announcement

Written by  Margaret Sullivan

Oh, Merriam-Webster, bless you and your shade.

By now, you've probably seen the announcement that British actress Jodi Whittaker will play the next Doctor in Doctor Who, making her the first woman to portray the iconic role in the long-running science fiction series.

Enter Twitter shade master Merriam-Webster, with this brilliant response:

'Doctor' has no gender in English.

— Merriam-Webster (@MerriamWebster) July 17, 2017

And Twitter absolutely ate it up.

You amateur status is being revoked. This is PRO level shade.
