‘There’s alot of people out there with mental problem and the have mobile phones and data. I can tell you that 30% of these people online are not stable. So now you give them twitter and a voice to have access into your life, what do you expect’.
These were the words of the comedian Basketmouth as he spoke about social media trolls when he was a guest of The Gist hosted by Emma Ugolee.
Basketmouth went on to advise celebrities not to bring personal matters to social media for discussion.
In his words, ‘don’t bring your issues on social media and let people that have never been married before to judge you. At the end of the day, you are entertaining these people. So when you put your life out there, you let people that are not too stable emotionally and otherwise say alot of crap about important issues‘.
