The Overwatch League Grand Finals are taking place in a sold out NBA arena and being broadcast on ESPN, but some out there are still questioning the legitimacy of esports.
Instead of letting the doubters go uncontested, the official Overwatch League Twitter account decided to hand out devastating burns.
First up was an unfortunate user, who happens to be an imitation account of a famous NBA reporter, that posted a poll asking if Overwatch is a sport.
An overwhelming 90% of respondents replied that Overwatch was a sport and the OWL Twitter account made sure to rub it in.

A desperate attempt to save face by the pollster was also shot down with another gif.
Next up was someone who did not bother with a poll and instead went straight to claiming that Overwatch was not a sport.
The not a sport tweet got “ratioed,” with 26 replies on only 6 likes. The OWL’s response received over 1,000 likes.
Finally, it would not be a Twitter argument without the appearance of a Spongebob meme.
