Walk of Fame Victoria’s Secret Model Shuts Down Trolls Who Don’t Believe She Can Code Published 5 months ago on Sep 21, 2018 By Michael Evans As an accomplished coder, Victoria’s Secret model, and the first African-American woman to receive a contract with Calvin Klein, it goes without saying that Lyndsey Scott is one impressive individual. Unfortunately, there are some internet trolls who simply couldn’t believe that an attractive woman of color could hold her own as a computer engineer. Haters Gonna Hate The ordeal began when Instagram user coding engineer shared a post detailing Scott’s fluency in a variety of coding languages. The caption simply read “CODING IS FOR ANYONE!” Atlanta Black Star The positive vibes soon fell flat when a handful of commenters began doubting Scott’s coding prowess for no apparent reason. Some suggested that she probably only knew very basic coding tricks, while others discredited her resume entirely. Scott Steps In After the skeptics made their opinions known, the model herself chimed in. She quickly shut the bigotry down, citing her undeniable credentials in the tech world. Twitter “I have 27481 points on StackOverflow; I’m on the iOS tutorial team for RayWendelich.com; I’m the Lead iOS software engineer for @RallyBound, the 841st fastest growing company in the US according to @incmagazine,” she continued. “I have a Bachelor’s degree from Amherst where I double-majored in computer science and theater, and I’m able to live my life doing everything I love. Looking at these comments I wonder why 41% of women in technical careers drop out because of a hostile work environment.” Standing Up For Women In STEM Scott then chose to share screenshots of the conversation with her own substantial follower base in order to shine a light on the toxicity female programmers often face. Mic “I normally try to ignore negativity, but decided to jump into the comment section of this one,” she wrote. “Not trying to brag lol, just stating facts in the hope I’ll convince at least one negative commenter that programmers can come in all shapes, sizes, genders, races, etc. so they’ll think twice before doubting other women and girls they encounter in tech.” UP NEXT Burt Reynolds Was Weeks Away From Filming His ‘ComebackR...
