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 "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
