A Twitter troll learned Thursday that’s it’s probably a good idea to spellcheck tweets when attacking the National Spelling Bee.

During Thursday night’s competition, Kyle Chapman tweeted a foul-mouthed complaint to the organization.

Notice the problem? The National Spelling Bee sure did.

The tweet attracted so much attention Chapman briefly took his Twitter account offline, according to Deadspin.

He later restored it, changing his bio to read “catch me on CNN,” in reference to the media coverage he had received.

The Scripps National Spelling Bee ended in a tie for the third consecutive year Thursday night, with Jairam Hathwar and Nihar Janga declared co-champions after a roller-coaster finish.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
