Why do people have to HATE so much?!
#AskZoella is one of our favourite Trending Topics on Twitter ever because it no doubt means Zoe Sugg is prepping for a Q&A; video. In what has become a regular occurrence on her YouTube channel, Zoe takes to social media to ask fans to submit all their burning questions and she'll pick a dozen or so lucky ones out and reveal all.
As you can imagine, Zoe is inundated with thousands upon thousands of Tweets (how she picks the final bunch, we'll never know) but some jokers recently took time out of their busy schedules to ask Zoella some rather, er, awkward questions.
As we know, Zoe is a bright, educated and intelligent woman but when Twitter users went all Mastermind on her, we don't blame her for not addressing them. From very deep philosophical questions to science, maths and even which eyeliner works best for covering an existential crisis, things got pretty weird.

To what extent would you say the theories put forward by Sayyid Qutb influence modern Islamic extremists?#AskZoella— Graham Love (@GLove39) May 3, 2016
Whilst these questions are no doubt individually important, can we just address the fact that they seemingly belittle the joys of pop culture, make-up, fashion and indulging in YouTube? As much as some of these tweets made us giggle, we'd like to think the people behind the accounts can see that Zoe is a valid role model for millions across the world - whether or not she knows about philosophy, European politics or the ins and outs of the German language.
And, you know, there's a decent chance Zoe may well fire back at the haters and slay us all with some serious next level knowledge and answer every single one of the above questions.
Of course, these tweets were just a small chunk of the responses Zoe received- here are a couple of our favourite (non-troll) #AskZoella questions:
