Idiot alert! Instead of writing his own name, Wharton freshman Eric Curtis reportedly wrote “Michael Fassbender” on the front page of his accounting exam today. Your name’s not Michael Fassbender, dummy! Your name’s Eric!

Look, we all wish we were the handsome and magnetic star of such films as X-Men: Days of Future Past, Assassin's Creed, and X-Men: First Class. Deep down, we all want to be a six-foot-tall Irish-German actor known early in his career for small but significant roles in 300, Inglourious Basterds, and the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers

You were never in Band of Brothers, Eric! You’ve probably never even played legendary designer and visionary Steve Jobs in an eponymous 2015 biopic! But you know has done that, Eric? I bet you fucking do.

I’m so goddamn heated right now Eric. I can’t believe you would do something like this to Michael Fassbender. What has he ever done to you, besides gift you with deeply emotional scene-stealing turns in such masterworks as Shame and 12 Years a Slave

Get a life, Eric.
