Meet Brian Sims, Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.He’s also the state’s first openly gay lawmaker.
One man recently came to Sims’ Facebook page to attack him, but got a little more than he bargained for.
Yet when Sims saw that the troll had posted a phone number on his own Facebook page, the lawmaker took matters into his own hands.
Sims was expecting the troll to answer the phone. He was, however, pleasantly surprised to hear an older woman pick up; the number posted online was the troll’s grandmother.
“David,” Sims wrote in response. “… you shouldn’t have posted your grandmother’s telephone number on your Facebook page so many times. She and I just had a very disappointing chat about you.”
Sims then captioned the post with a warning for other trolls:
“Dear Bigots, posting your grandmother’s telephone number all over the same page you use to post slurs on other people’s pages is not going to end well for you.”
