The Special Olympics were founded by the former mother-in-law of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Terminator star has worked tirelessly for the organisation for many years.
The 69-year-old took to social media this week to celebrate the winter event, but his post unfortunately attracted the attention of an unsavoury view.
So often unpleasant remarks slip by unnoticed in Facebook comments sections… but not this time. Arnie made absolutely sure of that.
“As stupid and evil as this comment is, I’m not going to delete it or ban you (yet) because it’s a teachable moment,” Schwarzenegger said. “You have two possible paths ahead. Right now, I guarantee you that these athletes have more courage, compassion, brains, skill – actually more of every positive human quality than you. So take their path – you could learn from them, and try to challenge yourself, or give back, to add something from the world. “Or you can stay on your path, and keep being a sad, pitiful, jealous internet troll who adds nothing to the world but mocks anyone who does out of small-minded jealousy. “I know what you really want is attention, so let me be clear: if you choose to keep going this way, no one will ever remember you.”
Amen to that Arnie!
The Special Olympics is a wonderful, inspiring event and it’s terrific to see such a famous ambassador supporting it in such a forthright way.
