A Troll Sent This Woman Nasty Messages So She Told His Mom

Listen, there are a lot of upsides to dating apps.

It’s an amazing resource for finding a date fast, and all the energy you need to put into that is swiping your thumb left or right.

Certainly a far cry from the days of having to troll bars of drunken bros and bachelorette parties in order to meet someone.

Plus some of the bios are hilarious…

But, as any woman (or man, frankly) can tell you: there’s a lot NOT to love about dating apps.

I mean, for starters, the DMs escalate from “Hi!” to “Let’s bone” instantly.

And then there’s all the over-sharing.

Like, really, lots of oversharing.

But then there’s the downright harassment that happens every day and everywhere.

Plenty of people used to shrugging it off, but no matter who you are, all this harassment by online trolls eventually wears you down and makes you feel crummy. Because fixing the problem isn’t much of a possibility, how does one dole out the best troll response possible?

Kallie Plagge, a reviews editor, and host for Gamespot, recently shared a horrific message she received from a random guy on Facebook.

But rather than letting it ruin her day, she decided to show it to his mom to see what she had to say.

*** Strong language ahead***

Kallie, you’re a genius.


While this isn’t the first time a games journalist has taken a disgusting comment or threat directly to the mother, it does highlight just how effective the method is. Alanah Pearce, another gaming journalist, did the same thing back in 2014 with incredible results.

Today, people around the Internet are applauding Kallie’s genius and bravery, as well as being properly flabbergasted to learn the troll is 37 and not 13.

Hopefully, that grown man’s mouth is getting washed out with plenty of soap.
