Obviously this tweet sent out by Boogie2988 is a sad reminder of the satisfaction some people seem to get out of hurting others.
On the flipside though, it’s a beautiful commentary on the compassion of humans. Coming to aid Boogie2988 and the victimized fan were a legion of crusaders providing moral support and discussion on how to battle trolls. Overcoming the mental anguish that trolls can effect is its own game. Mental defense is as important to your health bar as anything else!

It can be a hard defense, but once mastered it can be very effective. Everything takes practice.
