Jackie Hoffman's Emmys Bit Slays, Confuses Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 9.27.08 AMIf you caught the Emmys, you may have seen Jackie Hoffman — nominated for her brilliant turn as enigmatic Mamacita in Feud: Bette and Joan — mouthing, “Dammit! Dammit!” when she lost to Ann Dowd (in The Handmaid's Tale).

For anyone with a brain, it was clearly a funny bit. But some entertainment outlets and others on Twitter must've checked their brains before the viewing party ...

Because people started reacting to Jackie's reaction as if it may be real, she followed it up with even more outlandish tweets:

Honestly, guys, it's not that hard to figure out. No wonder the Russians had no problem duping America with anti-Hillary and pro-Trump Facebook posts, and no wonder there are people who think all news is fake, including mass shootings.

I've been enjoying Jackie's work for 20 years in NYC, including this semi-recent one-woman performance.

Here's the bit, BTW:

P.S. For anyone at all skeptical of the idea that Jackie Hoffman was making jokes:
