UK NEWS: BOXER CURTIS WOODHOUSE RECEIVES APOLOGY FROM TWITTER TROLL LIVE ON ‘DAYBREAK’

Curtis Woodhouse and Twitter troll James O’Brien

Former footballer turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse received an apology live on television this morning from a Twitter troll.

James O’Brien had been sending a series of abusive tweets for up to eight months to the boxer, but had to apologise after Woodhouse eventually snapped, tracked down O’Brien’s address details via his Twitter followers and drove to the troll’s home to discuss matters further. The final straw came when O’Brien called Woodhouse a “disgrace” after he lost his English light-welterweight title last week.

Woodhouse drove from Hull to  Sheffield and tweeted a photograph of Mr O’Brien’s street, saying

“Right Jimbob  Im here !!!!! someone tell me what number he lives at, or do I have to knock on every door. It’s showtime.”

A now terrified O’Brien (@jimmyob88) then tweeted,

“I am sorry it’s getting a bit out of hand. I am in the wrong. I accept that.”

On this morning’s Daybreak Woodhouse said:

‘If you are in the public eye, I don’t think  it’s right that you should be abused, your family should be abused, your  children should be abused, I don’t think anyone has got the right to do that.

‘I was sat on the sofa with the wife on  Monday and the thing is she sometimes uses my account as well and she’s seen  this abuse and it worries and scares her.

‘We don’t know who this guy is and some of  his threats, I don’t know if he’s being serious or not. I could see that she was  worried and I thought enough is enough, I am going to put a stop to this right  now.’

You could have knocked me down with a feather this morning when Daybreak presenter Aled Jones announced that O’Brien was in the studio and then he appeared on screen shame faced and clearly bricking it. I watched through my fingers as he sat down on the sofa beside Woodhouse and then went on to apologise to him.

Hahahaha – O’Brien won’t forget this lesson in a hurry.

Well done Curtis!
