While Sarah Silverman is a comedian renowned for being unafraid of vulgarity, she recently showed her soft side to a Twitter user who insulted her over politics.
Silverman originally tweeted that she was open to having a discussion with Donald Trump supporters about their differing political views on social media, should the opportunity arise; but despite her polite wording in the post, a Twitter user named Jeremy Jamrozy called Silverman a sexist slur.
Instead of responding in kind, however, Silverman looked at the man’s other posts and saw that he was a man suffering from difficult circumstances.
She then wrote to Jamrozy saying: “I believe in you. I read ur timeline & I see what ur doing & your rage is thinly veiled pain. But u know that. I know this feeling. Ps My back f***ing sux too. See what happens when u choose love. I see it in you.”
The two started discussing their problems until Jamrozy apologized to Silverman for his behavior.
“Don’t give up on yourself,” the comedian responded. “Be brave enough to risk getting burned. It’s what happens when u fight for yourself. But it’s worth it. I promise.”
Silverman finished the heartwarming exchange by asking her 12.3 million Twitter followers if they knew of a doctor in the San Antonio area who could help Jamrozy with his back pain. Not only that, but she also told Jamrozy that she would pay for his medical treatment.
“I was once a giving and nice person, but too many things destroyed that and I became bitter and hateful,” Jamrozy said. “Then Sarah showed me the way. Don’t get me wrong, I still got a long way to go, but it’s a start.”
