BBC Tracks Down Internet Troll in Real Life

The internet is a beautiful, amazing thing, so it only makes sense that somebody has to come along and ruin it. Internet trolls are a special kind of scum, the kind that wouldn’t even be allowed in the seediest cantinas Mos Eisley has to offer. And you can never beat a troll at its own game. So that leaves you with two options: ignore them or, as BBC’s Panorama did, track them down and confront them in person.

In a segment aired last week, the BBC tracks down a man known as Darren Burton who’s been posting offensive comments on the Facebook pages of people who have died. When asked why, Burton simply said he’s entitled to his opinions and that Facebook is an open forum. He also seems unafraid of any potential consequences.

While this may not have been as satisfying as the finale of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, in which the titular duo hunt down and violently assault a whole host of internet trolls, it’s definitely more interesting.
