Sarah Silverman's Twitter exchange with a would-be troll will give you hope for 2018

Well, isn’t this nice?

In an interview with Uproxx back in May, comedian Sarah Silverman said- “Having a screaming competition… never changes minds. So, we need to try and understand each other.” Yesterday she was as good as her word.

A Twitter user named Jeremy called her the c-word and instead of ignoring him, or lashing out, she went on to his profile. From previous messages the 47-year comedian old found out Jeremy had issues with back pain and drug abuse and reached out to him.

“I believe in you. I know this feeling….I see it in you,” she wrote, before the pair had this beautiful interaction.

Silverman then tried to understand how he was dealing with his issues.

And then gave this advice.

She then sent out a tweet trying to get Jeremy back on his feet.

And got this response.

We're not crying, YOU'RE crying.
