Patton Oswalt Rewards Twitter Troll By Turning An Opportunity Into A Good Deed

by Jack

Being famous would be tough at times. Being constantly scrutinized by the entire world for your every move would surely be draining, and it would be tough at times to not bite back.

Patton Oswalt is known for biting back fairly often, normally with hilarious results. This time though, he made a different choice. After posting some anti-Trump replies, Patton was met with ridicule from a certain Twitter user.

They had a bit of chat back and fourth about their conflicting reviews, before Patton realized that the guy was actually a Vietnam war veteran who was not in a good way and was currently seeking some donations to help with his massive medical bill. What Patton chose to do is an important lesson for us all about the way we treat each other.
