Sarah Silverman was called a c**t by a Twitter troll, and her response devastated him

Silverman consoled the man for his past and said that love will solve all.

In an interview with Uproxx back in May, comedian Sarah Silverman had said- “Having a screaming competition… never changes minds. So, we need to try and understand each other.” And she proved on Twitter that she is as good as her word.

A few days ago, Sarah sent out a tweet as she was reaching out to a Trump supporter in the hope of understanding where they were coming from, and a total stranger replied cruelly with nothing but the "c" word. However, Sarah took a completely different route, finding the roots of Jeremy’s anger – his health.


Instead of lashing back or blocking the user, Silverman opted for a sweet and compassionate response.

"I believe in you. I read ur timeline & I see what ur doing & your rage is thinly veiled pain," she tweeted back. "But u know that. I know this feeling. Ps My back F--king sux too," she added, referring to the back troubles the twitter user mentioned on his Twitter feed. "see what happens when u choose love. I see it in you."


Remarkably, Jeremy Jamrozy, the troll, then let down his guard and explained his pain. "I can't choose love. A man that resembles Kevin Spacey took that away when I was 8," he wrote.



"I can't find peace if I could find that guy who ripped my body who stripped my innocence I'd kill him. He f--ked me up and I'm poor so it's hard to get help."

Silverman continued her conversation with Jeremy and asked him if he uses heroin and if he wants to get clean. He replied that he smokes weed and takes prescription meds. That was when Silverman talked about the pitfalls of self-punishment and suggested that he join a support group.

"I want to kill him too so I can't imagine your rage. All I know is this rage- and even if you could kill him— it's punishing yourself. And you don't deserve punishment. You deserve support," she said. "Go to one of these support groups. You might meet ur best bros there."



The man agreed to get help and confessed that he's antisocial and has no friends. 

At the end of the exchange, Silverman wrote, "Im so psyched you'll go. KEEP ME POSTED. Don't give up on yourself. Be brave enough to risk getting burned. It's what happens when u fight for yourself. But it's worth it. I promise."


The comedian then reached out to other people for help. She tweeted from her personal handle, asking people from San Antonio who could help Jeremy Jamrozy with his severe back and neck pain issues. The response was immediate, with spinal clinic Airrosti getting in touch with Jeremy and getting him the treatment he needs.

This entire exchange between the comedian and her troll has become an internet hit, with legions of Silverman fans singing the star's praises for taking the high road.

"This is honestly one of the nicest and truly decent gestures I've ever seen a human being, much less a celebrity, give to another human being," wrote one follower. "Your heart and character are as big as your talent."

The approach seems to be part of Silverman's mission to help calm the increasingly nasty and confrontational political discourse that has taken hold, especially in the U.S.

"Screaming at each other has never caused change," she said in an interview. "Sure, sometimes major protests and rioting in the streets cause change, but when it's people one-on-one? Having a screaming competition in that setting never changes minds. So we need to try and understand each other."
