If You Correct Someone Online And You Don’t Know What You’re Talking About, You’re Gonna Get Owned (35 Pics)

The internet is a unique space where individuals can assume god-like power and knowledge, thanks to anonymity. This allows for actions, such as falsely claiming expertise, that would be unlikely in the physical world. However, this sense of superiority can lead to incorrectly correcting people.

Although it’s pretty self-explanatory, incorrectly correcting is the act of failing to correct someone and looking like an even bigger idiot than the original poster. This happens so often on social media that there’s a whole subreddit and Facebook page dedicated to hilarious examples.

Here are some of the funniest pics shared in the groups.
