Wil Wheaton Explains What To Do When Accused Of Being A Nerd

An old video of Wil Wheaton at a Q&A during the 2013 Denver Comic Con has for inexplicable reasons waited until now to go viral.

But I can see why it's getting so popular. Wheaton is known for his star turn in 1986 as a kid in the movie "Stand By Me" and more recently in the TV show "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

He does a whole bunch of stuff in the film, television and online industries, and he proudly wears the label of being a nerd or a geek. He's got a popular blog that's worth a look, too.

At this Denver event, a young girl asked Wheaton how to respond when people call her a nerd. He gave the perfect answer to anyone who is the subject of name calling and similar abuse.

I can't improve on what he says, so take it away Wil!
