The young girl went on a rant, criticising everything from the way British people spell words to their slang and 'pale skin'

This week an American teenager found herself at the centre of a social media storm - and became the nemesis of many a Brit - when she launched into a Twitter tirade attacking British culture .

She began by introducing her rant, saying: "im gonna do a thread on weird things British people do" (sic).

Then she listed all of her biggest bugbears - based on a British person she met on holiday - leaving no holds barred.

 

She attacked everything from spelling to 'pale' skin, and taking issue with little things - like the way we say 'grated cheese' instead of 'shredded cheese'.

We also 'drive weird' and on the 'wrong side of the road' and our British slang makes 'zero sense'.

While we're on the subject of slang, everyone stop saying 'lad' and 'mate', because we use that too much as well.

We imagine this is how British people were laughing after their response

 

This week an American teenager found herself at the centre of a social media storm - and became the nemesis of many a Brit - when she launched into a Twitter tirade attacking British culture .

She began by introducing her rant, saying: "im gonna do a thread on weird things British people do" (sic).

Then she listed all of her biggest bugbears - based on a British person she met on holiday - leaving no holds barred.

 

 

She attacked everything from spelling to 'pale' skin, and taking issue with little things - like the way we say 'grated cheese' instead of 'shredded cheese'.

We also 'drive weird' and on the 'wrong side of the road' and our British slang makes 'zero sense'.

While we're on the subject of slang, everyone stop saying 'lad' and 'mate', because we use that too much as well.

 

Have your say in the comments below

 

 

Naturally, Brits weren't very happy about it.

So as well as replying to her to tell her where she's going wrong on a few of her opinions, they also started tweeting with the hashtag #WeirdThingsAmericansDo.

What do you think? Have your say in the comments section below.

1. Play 'football'

 

 

 

2. Name liquids

 

 

 

 

They are, of course, referring to Americans' 'gasoline' - as in, the stuff they put in cars. Fair point, it is a liquid.

3. Speak English

 

 

 

 

 

4. Drive cars

 

 

 

5. Banning Kinder Eggs

 

 

 

6. Bacon

 

 

 

7. Sidewalks

 

 

 

8. Dates

 

 

 

9. Donald Trump

 

 

 

10. Spelling

 

 

 

11. Rude words

 

 

 

12. Pronunciation

 

 

 

Let's just hope this doesn't start World War III
