In Rishab Jain’s case, it reads: "If you love me, I'm always in your heart. If you hate me, I'm always on your mind."
As a recent semifinalist in the Jeopardy! College Championship, the Georgia Institute of Technology freshman knows a thing or two about being on haters’ minds. He appeared on national television twice during the competition, which included 15 students representing different campuses.
The 18-year-old took the opportunity “to look up my name on Twitter and see what people thought of me.”
“I was taken aback at first to see some people name calling and saying borderline racist comments to some other contestants of color,” the materials science and engineering student told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
People took to Twitter to take issue with Jain’s forcefulness on the buzzer and his volume, things he attributes to the technical rules of the game and “the adrenaline of being on such a big stage.”
Instead of ignoring the comments, Jain chose to retweet the “funniest criticisms” of himself in order to show his friends and fellow jeopardy players that “the many armchair contestants will always pick apart” the players.
He shared about a dozen tweets, with people calling him weird, or “way too shouty,” or saying he “needs to chill.”
