I was still high off the outpouring of support for 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed. Last week, the muslim teen was arrested when a LED clock he was tinkering with was suspected to be a bomb—or at least a bomb hoax. The science community came out in droves to show their support for him. The president even invited him to the White House as #istandwithahmed spread across the internet. Then a smaller, angrier group began to speak out: Salty internet pedants. As soon as the cheers for Ahmed began to die down, they started picking apart everything from the teen's choice of words, to the type of clock he brought into school. Richard Dawkins jumped in, and it was all over after that.
