Becoming a celebrity means you have to accept that you will be trolled. It’s part of the territory.

You become famous and there will be people who will mock you, abuse you, snarl at you, tell you that you are a fraud, not good enough. They come from rage. They come from envy. But they remind you of how precarious and precious your position is.

Everyone wants the space you occupy and the space you occupy is temporary.

Nothing lasts forever. Neither the troll nor the celebrity.
