A Cruise Captain Has Gone Viral For Her Brilliant Reply To A Commenter Who Suggested Women Can’t Steer Ships

A cruise captain has h!t back at a comment posted by a se*ist viewer on her social media account.

Captain Kate McCue, who works for US-based vessel Celebrity Cruises, responded to a troll who asked: “How can you be a captain? Your only a woman [sic].”

Her brilliant response has been viewed more than one million times – and fans praised her classy way to take down the ha-ter.

Filming on her ship, Kate says: “Normally as I’m scrolling through comments and see something like this, I totally ign-ore it and move on with my life.

“But I think it’s about high time that I address this because it’s 2020. “And in this day and age, I’m sh*cked that someone still doesn’t know the difference between ‘you’re’ and ‘your’.”

The captain then highlights the troll’s grammatical mistake by giving out examples. “So a quick reference here, ‘you’re’ as in ‘you are’ – ‘you are se*ist’. “‘Your’, is something pos*essive, it belongs to you. Like ‘your ign-orance’.”

She ends the clip by offering help to TikTok user at seamus272, adding: “But don’t worry, I’m here for you. “If you need any more clarification, you can find me here, in my captain’s chair.” Viewers praised for Kate’s handling and called her “queen of clapbacks”.

One said: “Couldn’t have responded any more perfectly. You rock!” Another joyful fan wrote: “The queen has spoken, clapbacks!” Some noticed the troll had deleted the comment shortly after the video. “I like that ‘comment isn’t available’ and he deleted that comment quite quickly,” an eagle-eyed viewer added.
