Brits have hit back hard after an American teenager decided to pick a fight with the whole of Britain in a bizarre Twitter rant earlier this week.
In a stream of ridiculous tweets, 16-year-old Madi, questioned everything about us from our pale complexions to our spelling – seriously, our spelling? – to our beloved scones.

But don’t worry, the Brits of Twitter didn’t take this abuse of our fine culture lying down.
And because nobody mocks us – especially a sixteen-year-old scone shamer – Brits have now responded with the #WeirdThingsAmericansDo hashtag:
Can own a gun, drive a car at 16, vote and smoke at 18 but can't have a beer until 21 #weirdthingsamericansdo

Although, I do have to hand it to them – douchebag is an awesome insult.
#weirdthingsamericansdo call the annual North American baseball championship the World Series. So USA and Canada is the world then…

Ban Kinder eggs because of 'child safety' but allow 16 year olds to own a gun? #weirdthingsamericansdo

It’s probably best we don’t jump on them too fast for that one, with Boris Johnson lurking in the shadows…
