It was a nightmare for a local artist here as she got trolled for the last 50 hours. Her crime? She accidentally mentioned “Aquaman” as her favourite Marvel hero. Now, this is outrageous for any DC or Marvel fan, and that poor thing was harassed relentlessly for her slip of the tongue.

The one thing I noticed, in this case is people have become ruder and more unforgiving during this pandemic. It may be because people are at home and excessively using social media. The trolling has increased — and, as a result, so have the nervous breakdowns.

It’s become evident social media is causing a lot of damage, and we need to keep a distance to keep ourselves sane. …

Imagine a club where everyone is waiting for your arrival, and as soon as you announce something, the whole crowd gathers around you. Now imagine you standing with a microphone and announcing regularly, but nobody is noticing you or your announcements.
