Star Trek” actor William Shatner got into a heated Twitter exchange with millennial users who incorrectly targeted him with the popular “OK Boomer” jab.

For those unfamiliar, “OK Boomer” is a popular phrase used to dismiss the opinions of baby boomers that younger people deem irrelevant or uninformed. Shatner was commenting on a back-and-forth between “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron and viewers upset about Sean Spicer’s continued presence on the show when one of his followers directed the “OK Boomer” jab at the 88-year-old actor.

Sweetheart, that’s a compliment for me. 😘 https://t.co/djCtjiGBwr

I feel it’s like one of those childish insults in fandom that seem to affect the delicate types to the point they meltdown & go over the rest of our heads as something ridiculous. 🤷🏼‍♂️ If the person posting it thinks they are making a dig; they are the fools. 🤷🏼‍♂️ https://t.co/M9Okvu4lNo

Shatner was born in 1931 and is, by definition, not a boomer.

“I’m not really into pejoratives, but what’s the term for people when they can’t interpret a joke?” the user replied.

He continued: “I feel it’s like one of those childish insults in fandom that seem to affect the delicate types to the point they meltdown & go over the rest of our heads as something ridiculous,” he wrote. “If the person posting it thinks they are making a dig; they are the fools.” – READ MORE
