Jackie Hoffman's "DAMN IT! DAMN IT!" is the secret iconic moment of the night. #Emmys— Hunter Plummer (@hunterplummer) September 18, 2017
To ratchet up the intrigue as to whether her reaction was real or a moment of purposed levity (as her "http://I'm kidding" Twitter bio would indicate), the actress went on to tweet about the loss, writing, "Laura Dern had famous parents. Forgive me for being from real people #elitism."
She even dubbed herself a "sore loser" before throwing out another harsh tweet about Dern.
I hear that Laura Dern runs a child porn ring #soreloser Emmys2017— Jackie Hoffman (@JackieHoffman16) September 18, 2017
But not to worry. She went on to assure everyone she was joking.
I hear the media actually taking my reaction seriously? Are you kidding me?— Jackie Hoffman (@JackieHoffman16) September 18, 2017
