To which the incredible comedic team that is Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers responded by absolutely owning him. They used Benoit’s own idiotic comment to point out the ridiculous way that the media handles women’s sports, and we were gifted with the following segment:

Benoit tried to apologize for his offensive comment:

But it looks like the damage is already done. Because, as Amy Poehler put it: “No more tweeting, Benoit. You’re too dumb.” And whatever Queen Amy says, goes. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
