6. Dictionary.com Joins The Roast of DJ Khaled
After DJ Khaled said he doesn't eat pussy but demands head from his wife because the rules are different between men and women, twitter was whipped up into a roasting frenzy and Dictionary.com wasn't afraid to join the party:
Double standard. A code containing different provisions for one group of people than for another, especially an unwritten code of sexual behavior permitting men more freedom than women.— Dictionary.com (@Dictionarycom) May 4, 2018

5. Dictionaries Hate Republicans
Here's Dictionary.com calling American Vice President Pence a "sycophant"
Here's Merriam-Webster calling bullshit on "alternative facts"
*whispers into the void* In contemporary use, fact is understood to refer to something with actual existence. https://t.co/gCKRZZm23c— Merriam-Webster (@MerriamWebster) January 24, 2017
And here's Dictionary.com again coming for the NRA after a speaker incorrectly said that political and media elites were the "definition of dystopia" (they also just called Sarah Huckabee Sanders a hypocrite lol)
4. They Also Hate Sexists and Homophobes
Dictionaries are quick to shut down backlash that stems from a sexist or homophobic place, including the shitstorm over the Ghostbusters all-female remake and the announcement that Doctor Who would be played by a woman for the first time ever:
Trust us: the feminine form of 'ghostbuster' is 'ghostbuster'.— Merriam-Webster (@MerriamWebster) July 15, 2016
'Doctor' has no gender in English.— Merriam-Webster (@MerriamWebster) July 17, 2017
People keep— Merriam-Webster (@MerriamWebster) April 25, 2016
1) saying they don't know what 'genderqueer' means
2) asking why we added it to the dictionary pic.twitter.com/wsGZ7Y6XB8
3. They'll Hold You To Your Word
After Michelle Wolf's amazing appearance at the White House Correspondent's Dinner, Dennis Miller decided to take to twitter to say he would have a string of mean jokes about her to come on the following Wednesday (they never came and Dictionary.com made that perfectly clear).
The word "Wednesday" comes from the Old English *Wēdnesdæg, a mutated variant of Wōdnesdæg or Woden's day. Also, it's today, for all you Dennis Miller fans out there. https://t.co/qbmFywYKmn https://t.co/NKpZ3QKHAw— Dictionary.com (@Dictionarycom) May 2, 2018
2. They Have No Time For Revisionist Bullshit
In response to Kanye saying that slavery "was a choice", Dictionary.com shut that down real quick:
Got that, #Kanye?
1. This Act of Cannibalism
They even go after their own.
