The author had tweeted her love for Serena, expressing ‘what a woman!’ and calling her a ‘role model’, to which a troll replied ‘Ironic then that the main reason for her success is that she is built like a man’. The Internet was littered with distasteful memes, comments and tweets about the intimate scene but instead of firing back, the Academy Award nominee rose above the hate responding with a statement that she had the most fun filming that episode even though she was very nervous.
Tagging the singer in a tweet, her troll questioned if she knew ‘ boobs r hanging out in like all of videos,’ implying that the nudity was inappropriate. 5) Emma Watson was recently attacked online, accused of exploiting the death of actor Alan Hickman to promote her own feminist agenda after tweeting an image of the actor with his quote ‘There is nothing wrong with a man being a feminist, I think it is to our mutual advantage’.
Watson refused to back down, choosing to respond by posting even more tributes to her Harry Potter co-star and friend. The most common responses criticized her ‘science baby’, calling the process ‘twisted,’ without any regard to the hardship that her and husband John Legend have faced while trying to conceive naturally.

It turns out, when you give certain people the shield of anonymity to hide behind in the form of a computer screen, things get ugly. Internet trolls started popping out of the woodwork as early as the ’90s, when online discussion boards, comment threads, and groups were just beginning.
Make sure you write your policy in clear terms and post it on your site or platform. If you’re having a troll problem, moderation can go a long way toward keeping the issue under control.
To quickly put out their fire, one of the best ways to deal with them is to ignore them. I know this is hard, especially if the troll is posting offensive, abusive, or hateful comments.
If you don’t want random trolls posting comments and spewing hate on your social profiles, you can block those people, make your accounts friends-only, and screen everyone who follows you. This is definitely time-consuming, but could be a good option for people who are dealing with out-of-control trolls who won’t stop.
A good put -down is a thing of rare beauty, something to be relished like a fine wine. You can't even pretend to be offended when somebody insults you with the right combination of artistry and wit.
