WWII veteran Chuck Yeager has been breaking something else since joining Twitter six years ago. The dude’s a roasting machine, destroying haters and wise guys alike with flippant replies to all your burning questions.

Yeager recently took a hiatus from correcting trolls about Britain’s influence on the Bell X-1, the experimental aircraft he flew to become the first person to break the sound barrier. You see, he follows current news just as avidly as he drops knowledge on news of years’ past.

So, of course, he weighed in on Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian was robbed at her Paris apartment on Saturday night, losing millions of dollars in jewelry to thieves who made her fear for her life. Yeager was not one of these thieves. At least, that’s what he claims on Twitter.

Once the Kim K robbery truthers get ahold of this, we’re in for a whole lot of Yeager snark. Wake up and get owned, sheeple.
