Folks often take to Twitter and Facebook to bully classmates, coworkers, enemies, and celebrities. But, as technology grows and background checks are possible for nearly anyone, they may want to rethink their words before they post them.
According to New York Daily News, Curtis Woodhouse is a british boxer that was considering retirement when he took his latest loss in the ring. But to add insult to injury, a Tweeter, later identified by Woodhouse as Johnny O’Brian, went on a tirade against Woodhouse on Twitter saying:
@woodhousecurtis retire immediately cant even defend a pathetic little title you are a complete disgrace #awfulboxer

@1987holmesj great is a strong word mayweather Ali tyson Lewis were great fighters @woodhousecurtis is a laughable joke in my opinion
But Woodhouse, 32, showed O’Brian that he may have lost his fight, but he’s a boxer nonetheless and he’ll take on anyone, anywhere, any time. Woodhouse posted this on Twitter and hit paydirt:
It wasn’t much longer before he was in front of O’Brian’s door:
WHOA! This dude was not playing and O’Brian couldn’t retract his statements fast enough:
@woodhousecurtis i am sorry its getting abit out of hand i am in the wrong i accept that
To which Woodstone responded:
BRAVO WOODSTONE!! Best Twitter battle ever! You may not have won in the ring, but you certainly win in our society and against Mr. O’Brian. Maybe you cyber bullies out there will take note and change your mind about what you say next time!
