Pennsylvania Rep. Sims takes down internet bigot by calling grandma

Part of the territory that comes with life as a public figure is dealing with people who object to your views, sometimes in a personal and malicious manner.

Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims (D-Philadelphia) today handled a Facebook troll about as creatively and shrewdly as anyone might have hoped for under such repulsive circumstances.

Sims, an openly gay politician, received a hateful post on his Facebook page Wednesday that simply read, "N----- f-----," from a user whose last name has since been blurred out.

The response was priceless, as seen below in Sims' own Facebook post.

“David, I can’t tell if you’re just a really dumb little boy or an angry bigot but I know for sure that you shouldn’t have posted your grandmother’s telephone number on your Facebook page so many times,” Sims responded on Facebook. "She and I just had a very disappointing chat about you. We'll talk soon."

Support for Sims' reaction poured in on social media, where he received thousands of Facebook likes and plenty of praise on Twitter.

We can only imagine David will be making this one up to his grandmother for the foreseeable future.
