As his twitter shoot out with Trump proved, you just shouldn’t mess with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Another online troll has discovered this and we love Arnie’s response.
Terminated troll who questions the need for Special Olympics
So inspired by the athletes I'm meeting at Special Olympics World Games 2017 in Austria.

If you choose to keep going this way, no one will ever remember you.
You might not always agree with his choice of roles or his personal life, but you can’t deny that the former “Governator” is a standup guy. Recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been involved in one or two incidents on the Internet, which has seen him taking the high road and coming out the victor.
As a long-time supporter of the Special Olympic World Games, currently underway in his native Austria, Schwarzenegger has been attending the proceedings and offering his support to the athletes.
Being active on most social media platforms, he shared a video of himself and some athletes on his Facebook page, which received mostly positive comments.But, as what tends to happen on the Internet, the trolls came out.
The Special Olympics make no sense. The Olympics are for the best athletes in the entire world to compete against each other to determine who is the best. Having retards competing is doing the opposite.
But Schwarzenegger wasn’t having any of that, choosing to reply to the troll, instead of deleting the comment, to make for a “teachable moment”.
As evil and stupid as this comment is, I’m not going to delete it or ban you (yet) because it’s a teachable moment.
You have two possible paths ahead. Right now, I guarantee you that these athletes have more courage, compassion, brains and skill – actually more of every positive human quality than you.
So take their path – you could learn from them – and try to challenge yourself, to give back, to add something to the world. Or you can stay on your path, and keep being a sad pitiful jealous Internet troll who adds nothing to the world but mocks anyone who does out of small-minded jealousy.
I know that all you really want is attention, so let me be clear: if you choose to keep going this way, no one will ever remember you.
Earlier this month, Schwarzenegger also replied to President Trump’s comments about the ratings on The Apprentice, which wasn’t the first time to the two have had exchanges on Twitter.
When asked how he felt about constantly being targeted by Trump, on SiriusXM’s The Michael Smerconish Program, Schwarzenegger replied, “I think he’s in love with me”.
Really, nobody could blame him, Arnold.
