We can't thank social media and technology enough for making this world a smaller place, connecting everyone with just a click and bridging the gap between celebs and their fans. Gone are the days when to know what celebs are up to, we had to wait for the newspapers or magazine interviews. Now, all we need is to click on their social media profile and get the updates. But like everything has pros and cons, social media and fame too, comes with a price. Unfortunately, trolls have become that parasite of social media and every now and then, celebs have to deal with them.
