The internet is an incredible and diverse platform, especially for creatives. The ability to interact online, to watch, listen and engage with people and their content is amazing. However, the wonderful web also has a dark side, and one aspect I've always struggled to understand is Trolling. I truly believe that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I don’t in any way expect people to like everything they see or hear. However, what I think is unfortunate is the desire for some people to tear others down, seemingly, just because they can.‘Trolls’ is essentially a reflection on this unwanted negative attention that I, and I’m sure many others, sometimes experience online.
