It's not your usual exchange between a celeb and an online troll. After Twitter user Jeremy Jamrozy called Sarah Silverman the c-word, Silverman took some time to look through his social media profile and came back with this: "I believe in you. I read ur timeline & I see what ur doing & your rage is thinly veiled pain," she wrote. "But u know that. I know this feeling. Ps My back F--king sux too," she added, a reference to back pain he had mentioned. "(S)ee what happens when u choose love. I see it in you." Surprisingly, that led to an exchange between the two, in which Jamrozy apologizes but writes that he "can't choose love" because "a man that resembles Kevin Spacey took that away when I was 8," reports the San Antonio Current.
At one point, Silverman empathizes with the man's desire to exact revenge on his apparent abuser but advises him against it and instead suggests that he seek a support group. He promises to do so, and Silverman further reaches out to her supporters to find him medical help for his back, with apparent success. The entire exchange is being "held up as a model of compassion," per the CBC. (Read more Sarah Silverman stories.)
