Author Joyce Carol Oates took self-important “Don’t you know who I am?” condescension to a whole ‘nother level this morning when she sneeringly tweeted about herself in the third person.

How cute. Joyce Carol Oates even has a pet name for Joyce Carol Oates: “JCO.” And who can blame her? Who among us doesn’t have a special term of endearment for the woman who hoped the shooting deaths of NRA members would usher in gun control?

No worries, JCO. We know just who you are. How could we forget the literary giant bloodthirsty gun-grabber who likened Musket Morgan to a “crucified Negro”?


A Twitchy reader sums up JCO for JCO:


Joyce Carol Oates: If enough NRA members get shot, ‘maybe hope for legislation of firearms?’

Joyce Carol Oates: My hope for violence against NRA members wasn’t ‘ironic’; ‘I meant this seriously’

Joyce Carol Oates likens Piers Morgan to ‘crucified Negroes’ over deportation petition ‘rage’
