Yesterday evening, New York Magazine’s The Cut published an essay by Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of Prozac Nation and a lot of pretty controversial articles over the years, entitled “Elizabeth Wurtzel Confronts Her One Night Stand of a Life.” It’s a rather rambling and entitled affair, though not completely without its moments, we’d say. Twitter, by and large, hates it. In case you’re not following along, we’ve collected the funniest responses to Wurtzel’s piece (as of this morning) after the jump — check them out below, and let us know whether you agree, and what you thought of the article in the comments.
So I guess Elizabeth Wurtzel’s next book isn’t going to be called “Life Skills”.

I feel like everything Elizabeth Wurtzel writes is a #humblebrag. Maybe she can’t help it?

Thanks for hate-reading the Elizabeth Wurtzel piece so I don’t have to, Twitter.
