PLAYERS: Curtis Woodhouse
As the proverbial saying goes, a smart man learns from his mistakes but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others, so with that being said, there will be no twitter trolling for me. Earlier in the week, we reported a story about soccer player turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse, showing up at the house of his twitter troll, after his cyber abuser insulted him for losing a fight. Well, in a story via the Daily Mail, the troll, whose name is James O’Brien, met face to face with his victim and apologized on live television. ‘Embarrassed’ James O’Brien apologised live on television to Woodhouse, who he enraged so much that he put a ‘bounty’ on his tormentor’s head and drove more than 60 miles to his street. Woodhouse had been receiving abusive tweets from for up to eight months before he finally snapped when he was branded a ‘disgrace’ after losing his English light-welterweight title on points last week. Today Woodhouse said he finally decided to act after seeing how worried his wife was about the abuse. He told ITV’s Daybreak: ‘If you are in the public eye, I don’t think it’s right that you should be abused, your family should be abused, your children should be abused, I don’t think anyone has got the right to do that. Mr O’Brien, who sat next to him on the show, said he realised he had ‘let everyone down’ with his abuse. ‘I was really childish. Looking back on it, I realised that I had done a wrong thing,’ he said. ‘I can only offer my deepest apologies to anyone I ever abused on Twitter. I’ve let everyone down – friends, family – and I do feel really embarrassed.’ Check the video out here: Moral of the story is, don’t be a twitter troll or this can happen to you.
