People like that act that way because they don’t deal with their own problems and try to bring you down to their level.

A top MMA content creator, Will Harris, said: All the facts, ignore them @HelenYeeSports . Anyone who tries to do something good in their life will always be hounded by people who don’t have the balls to pursue their own passions and dreams.

Another member of the media, Amy Kaplan, wrote: “Wow what an act a**t.”

Alex Behunin said, “Jealousy at its finest, what a loser.”
