William Shatner Weighs in on Age Old Internet Battle

Occasionally, the internet will take their heated battles to bastions of various communities, like this latest installment of the age old hard G vs soft G when saying Graphics Interchange Format.

Who knew William Shatner had an opinion on such things? Apparently someone on Twitter, as they asked the former Starfleet Captain actor to weigh in.

An argument as old as the internet itself, the two differing pronunciations have been covered in several television series, most notably in AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire and CBS’s Big Bang Theory.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.



Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 



Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 



Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
