Arnold Schwarzenegger shuts down Facebook troll in best possible way


Arnold Schwarzenegger has a special place in his heart for the Special Olympics. Eunice Shriver Kennedy, Schwarzenegger’s mother-in-law, helped create the Special Olympics movement in the late 1960s, and last week, he attended the Special Olympics World Games 2017 in Austria, where he met this group of winning athletes.

So inspired by the athletes I'm meeting at Special Olympics World Games 2017 in Austria.

But after posting that inspirational message on Facebook on Thursday, a troll emerged in the comments section of his page. A troll that Schwarzenegger swatted away with power, confidence, and patience.

Strong words from a strong man. Strong enough to make that troll delete his original comment, anyway, and it shows once again that Schwarzenegger isn’t scared to take on the country’s most powerful person or the tiniest troll that will never be heard from again.
