First he roasts them, then he checks on them to see if they’re OK. This is how James Blunt handles trolls.
The 45-year-old singer is known for his devastatingly sassy replies to nasty tweets he gets, but Blunt has admitted that he’ll privately DM the troll to see if they’re coping with the sudden public scrutiny.
“When you’re face-to-face with people, they’re normally quite polite,” he said.
“When I do reply, I try and make sure it’s with humour and kindness.
“I direct message them, because their notifications will start going, and you don’t quite know how fragile they might be.
“They could be quite fragile, bearing in mind they’re on Twitter, feeling empowered when they’re upstairs in their bedroom with the curtains closed, their trousers round their ankles, writing something horrid to someone they’ve never met before.
“So, I direct message them often to say, ‘Hey, this is all in good humour and I hope you see it in that way. Peace out!'”
