An openly gay politician has hit back at an internet troll who posted a gay slur on his Facebook page by calling the troll’s grandma.
Pennsylvanian politician Brian Sims noticed the troll’s post, that also featured a racial slur, as he scrolled through his Facebook feed.
Sims replied: “I can’t tell if you’re just a really dumb little boy or an angry bigot but I know for sure that you shouldn’t have posted your grandmother’s telephone number on your Facebook page so many times.
“She and I just had a very disappointing chat about you. We’ll talk soon…”
He posted a screenshot of the exchange to his Facebook page, writing: “Dear Bigots, posting your grandmother’s telephone number all over the same page you use to post slurs on other people’s pages is not going to end well for you.”
