Dilbert comic creator Scott Adams married his longtime girlfriend, Kristina Basham, on July 11, 2020. However, due to their age difference, the wedding invited several trolls and mean comments for the 63-year-old-bridegroom and 32-year-old-bride.

After all the happenings and reading mean comments, Adams did not hold himself back. Along with his newly-wed wife Basham, he jointly responded to the haters, and that was some sight to witness.

Scott Adams And His Newly-Wed Wife Have Been Trolled For Their Age Difference Since They Were Dating

Scott Adams and his wife Kristina Basham, a pilot and instrumentalist, began dating in 2016. And ever since they started dating, people started passing mean comments to them mainly because of their age difference.

One Twitter user on July 12, 2018, expressed his views on Adams and Basham’s relationship. He wrote that Adams was smart and knew that Basham was with him only for money; however, he let her be with him because he wanted a young girl in his life.

Similarly, when the Dilbert comic creator posted a beautiful picture of his now-wife on Twitter, another Twitter user on July 8, 2018, replied to the post, writing, “your granddaughter?”

These are just a couple of instances when the newly-wed couple was trolled and received disturbing and mean comments. There are so many like these on the internet. 

The Couple Jointly Responded To The Haters After Getting Married

After 4 years together, Scott Adams and Kristina Basham finally got married on July 11, 2020. 

And within a few days after the wedding, the couple fired back at the unkind comments made on their wedding and relationship.

At first, the comic creator went on Twitter to respond back to the haters on July 14, 2020. He sarcastically thanked the “bitter and broken people” who had unkind things to say about his wedding. He also shared that he and his wife found those unkind comments entertaining. 

Thank you to all the bitter and broken people who had unkind things to say about my wedding. We found it entertaining that so many professional writers could only think of one joke-insult . . . and it was the same one.

On July 15, 2020, Scott's pilot wife added to her husband’s tweet and addressed bitter comments made on Scott’s wedding dress. She shared that he wanted to wear a jacket and tie, but she stopped him from wearing them.

It was 100 degrees out. Also, the wedding was in my backyard with only my parents, my grandparents and my siblings, because that’s what I wanted. 

In the end, she also elaborated on their age gap. She wrote, “im over 30. Age gap is irrelevant. I’m a grown WOMAN.”

Well, that response must have surely mummed people who had bitter things to say about the couple. 

Scott Adams Was Previously Married To Shelly Miles

Before getting married to his now-wife, Kristina Basham, Scott Adams was married to Shelly Miles. The former couple got married at a yacht in the San Francisco Bay in July 2006.

The wedding was also the first marriage for the then-49-year-old Scott. However, Shelly, then-39-year-old, was getting married for the second time and had two children: a son aged 6, and a daughter aged 8, at that time.

But the two could not sustain their marriage as they got divorced in 2014. The reason for their divorce remains private.
