But Corky, a junior English major, isn't upset.

“My tone is tongue-in-cheek,” she explained to The New Haven Register.

And she believes James' response was made in the same way.

“It was purposefully, intentionally overblown,” the 20-year-old student said. “All of these news outlets taking these seriously when it seemed so obvious. Youth culture is all about being sarcastic. He sort of fits in.”

And really, Corky says she's a big fan of James.
