Trolling on the internet is commonplace, and for the most part ignoring trolls is the best way to go about it. After all winning an argument on the internet against a complete stranger is hardly an accomplishment, right? In the case of British boxer, Curtis Woodhouse, his response to a troll on Twitter was to pay him a visit in person and give the troll a chance to say those nasty things to his face. What he did was offer up a reward of $1,500 to anyone who would tell him where this troll lived. Since this is the internet and the troll was hardly a master of hiding his identity, his location was quickly found.
In the meantime once the troll found out that this was really happening, he tried to make peace with Woodhouse by tweeting apologetic messages, such as, “I am sorry it’s getting a bit out of hand i am in the wrong i accept that,” and “Chill out pal I was only doing it so you would bite back it was only a bit of harmless fun.” Long story cut short, Woodhouse actually arrived in the neighborhood where the troll lived but was unable to ascertain his house number. However he decided that a physical confrontation was not the way to go and left, tweeting a message in the process, “@jimmyob88 never came out to play so im going back home! maybe a bit daft what i did today but sometimes enough is enough.” Phew, talk about a close shave @jimmyob88!
