SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell drew laughs from fans on social media after he clapped back at a Twitter user for incorrectly calling Utah a city.

Following the Boston Bruins’ loss to the St. Louis Blues in Game 7 of the NHL’s Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday, Mitchell tweeted “Goodnight Boston,” with the peace sign emoji.

Twitter user @JoeBropro  replied by saying “So close to three championships in one year,” referring to titles won by the Red Sox and Patriots over the last 12 months.

Then, another user, @20_JWill, whose profile picture shows him wearing a Boston Celtics pullover, tweeted “Imagine having this as our problem as a sports fan then there’s cities like Utah,” with a few zipper-mouthed emojis.

Seeing the incorrect statement, Mitchell retorted back at @20_JWill, saying “Imagine thinking Utah is a city,” with the hashtag #HateToSeeit.

Mitchell’s defense of Utah’s proper designation as a state as opposed to a city, drew a bevy of replies and retweets in celebration of the savage moment.

To his credit, @20_JWill took his mistake in stride, changing the bio on his profile to read “Utah is a state.”
