Like so many others, actress and comedian Sarah Silverman fell victim to the online harassment of an internet troll on Twitter. However, she took a far different route than any of us probably would have when she was subjected to his horrific language.
Silverman expressed that she was always “open” to trying to understand the motivations and beliefs of those who support President Trump, when one Twitter user, Jeremy Jamrozy, responded by calling her an incredibly vulgar term. Silverman responded to him that she “understood his pain,” and tried to open a dialogue with the gentleman.
Believe it or not, he responded, and they maintained contact on Twitter. Scrolling through Jamrozy’s timeline, Silverman found that he was in incredible back pain, and turned to her millions of Twitter followers asking to donate to a GoFundMe dedicated Jamrozy’s medical treatment.
Jamrozy revealed, however, that Silverman has offered to fund the entirety of his medical treatment, and plans of using the money already raised to help others seeking similar help. He told mySA.com, “I was once a giving and nice person, but too many things destroyed that and I became bitter and hateful. Then Sarah showed me the way. Don’t get me wrong, I still got a long way to go, but it’s a start.”
