Although Papa Penny Ahee is always filled with funny moments, last night's episode left Twitter emotional after Papa Penny revealed how hurt he was when he eventually found out the meaning of illiterate.

The reality TV star said that he was called illiterate by many people in his life, mostly because of his inability to speak "perfect" English. He explained that initially he didn't know what the word "illiterate" meant and he thought it had something to do with electricity.

The memes came streaming in as Twitter applauded the Tsonga music icon and managed to find the lighter side of the situation:
