Olivia Wilde Demonstrates How To Beat Twitter Trolls

I think we can all agree that the Daily Telegraph’s “Stop The Trolls” campaign had it all wrong. That goes double for Charlotte Dawson when she decided to “face” the folk that insulted her on Twitter. Little did we know that they should have all spoken to actress Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy) before doing anything. She has a brilliant way of beating trolls after insulting Justin Bieber last week.

After tweeting that Bieber should stop being a douchebag and “put his f**king shirt on” while out in London, Wilde fell victim to Bieber’s legion of trolly fans.

She reports on Jay Leno’s show that she got about 17,000 tweets from haters insulting her, and instead of taking it to heart and making a scene, she decided to be super classy and to make a game out of the lunacy of others.

Watch the video and embrace how one should really deal with the trolls.
