An Activist Writer Completely Disarms a Foul Troll Over Twitter in a Kind Display on MLK Day

A writer named Ijeoma Oluo has shared an interesting Twitter conversation she had with a 14-year-old, racist troll on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and the result is truly inspiring.

"You guys I'm a mom," she wrote on Facebook. "You think I'm going to let some 14 year old outlast me? I got love for days."

Warning: there are a lot of racial slurs and other awful stuff in here, but make sure to read all the way through to the end.

That must have been some pretty tasty gumbo.

A man in Washington, D.C. was so satisfied with his meal at Blue 44 on Monday, that he decided to tip the staff $2000 on top of his $93 bill.

He wrote a note at the bottom of the receipt clarifying that the amount was to be split between three people: $1000 for chef James Turner, and $500 each for the owner Christofer Nardelli and bartender Laura Dally.

His meal consisted of fried chicken, gumbo and some Old Chub Scotch Ale, according to theWashington Post.

And the anonymous patron told Nardelli that he did it because he is “very happy with what we’ve built and that he’s proud to be a customer.”

The restaurant posted a picture of the gumbo on Facebook Thursday, hoping to bring in some new customers thanks to all the publicity.

“The now famous Generosity Gumbo!” they wrote. “Chicken and Andouille sausage gumbo is still on special, so stop by and try a bowl of your own!”

You read that right. A person, or perhaps a group of people, going by the name tipsforjesus gave out these ludicrous sums to ordinary servers. Who could possibly leave this kind of money?

These kids are from Camp Sunshine, a support program for children and teens fighting cancer. If that can't rile up the team, what will?
