Lindsey Vonn has done a great many things in her 33 years – most notably becoming one of the best downhill and Super-G skiers of her generation, and earning Olympic and World Championship medals to prove it. However, as she prepares for her fourth Winter Games, Vonn finds herself reminding everyone on Twitter of all the things she hasn’t done.
On Tuesday, an anonymous Twitter troll took aim at Vonn, accusing her of being unable to take criticism during her time on Dancing With The Stars. It was an unprovoked and mean-spirited attack on her character, but more importantly, it was a figment of the troll’s imagination. Vonn has never competed on DWTS, so she and her followers decided to have a little fun with it.
im sorry this made me laugh. I was never on Dancing with the Stars, but thanks for the criticism none the less high fives buddy https://t.co/b8lsMuTwuZ

And you know, your performance as Mimi in The Met's production of La Boheme was not up to your usual vocal standards.

The hashtag #ThingsLindseyDidntDo meme has since been born from the comments on Vonn’s original reaction, and they’re made all the more hilarious considering the disingenuous and misinformed source they’re mocking.
Loved the way you were unable to score in the last second against the Eagles! I know it must have been a real learning experience. #thingslindseydidntdo

Loved the way you were unable to hit the high notes while singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl! I know it must have been a real learning experience. #thingslindseydidntdo

You've grown a little since your Lisel performance in the Sound of Music #thingslindseydidntdo

I don't think Fleetwood Mac has been as good since you left for your solo career. #thingslindseydidntdo

Not all trolls provide a day’s worth of comedic Twitter fodder, but when they do, it’s worth it.
