Boxer Curtis Woodhouse Confronts A Twitter Troll At His Home
When Curtis Woodhouse lost his English light-welterweight title on points to Shane Singleton on Friday night and he was branded a “disgrace” on the social networking site by ‘Jimmyob88’, who has reportedly been abusing Woodhouse on Twitter for months.
The boxer was so enraged with the tweets that he offered his followers a £1,000 reward if they could help him locate the culprit. Woodhouse’s growing number of Twitter followers chipped in and managed to track down his troll.
Woodhouse set off to find his troll, tweeting a photograph of the street on which Jimmyob88 lived. “Right Jimbob, I’m here,” he wrote, adding: “Someone tell me what number he lives at or do I have to knock on every door #itsshowtime.”
Realising the error of his ways, Jimmyob88 replied: “I am sorry it’s getting a bit out of hand. I am in the wrong. I accept that.” A triumphant Woodhouse went home, joking that he could have saved himself some petrol money by blocking his cowardly abuser.
Woodhouse has been hailed as a hero online, with Lennox Lewis, John Prescott and Joey Barton all offering messages of support after the story broke on Mashable.
We get it, Curtis was a lil sensitive after his loss, but was it REALLY that serious to go to this guy’s house?!
Moral of the story, watch who you iBeef with, everyone isn’t wrapped too tight nowadays.
Peep how it all went down after the flip.
