San Antonio Man Trolls Sarah Silverman on Twitter, But She Responds with Compassion

Sarah Silverman may be known for her career as a comedian and actress, but you can add life coach to her skill set.

Last week, Silverman was responding to ANOTHER troll who was criticizing her profile in BUST Magazine (to which she also responded with a genuine message). A Twitter user by the name of @jeremy_jamrozy then responded with this.
Instead of firing back or just ignoring him, Silverman showed Jamrozy a bit of compassion. She read through his profile and responded that his rage is "thinly veiled pain." Silverman also noticed his tweets about severe back pain and tried relating to him, encouraging him to "choose love."

Almost instantly, the man let his guard down.
He even apologized for trolling Silverman.
Silverman encouraged the man to get help – with a support group and bettering his outlook on life. But then, the comedian did him one better and used her celebrity status with 12.4 million followers to find a San Antonio doctor to help Jamrozy with his back pain. Some clinics responded to Silverman's request. Even Mayor Ron Nirenberg tried lending a helping hand. Jamrozy has since set up a GoFundMe to pay for his medical expenses related to pain relief.
