Trolls on Twitter are hardly a new thing. Hiding behind the safety of anonymity, a number of people take to the site for the sole purpose of abusing celebrities and other Twitter users. Take this guy's incredibly odious tweet to veteran actor Rishi Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor lost no time at all in in responding to this distasteful message.

The actor went on to say that the social media should go on to expose and embarrass abusive users like this guy.

And true to form, the rest of Twitter stood up together as one.

We're not calling for retribution. Like Rishi Kapoor says, the makers of such unnecessary provocations need to be called out and put to shame.
