Sympathy for Anna Lo on abuse

By Nuala McKeever

Just read two lovely supportive tweets the other night, referring to the play I was putting on. Unfortunately, also read a reply to one of them from some man declaring, "B*tch is as funny as cancer".

I guess if you're in the public eye at all, you gotta realise that haters are gonna hate. But still. It's upsetting. Hats off to Anna Lo and others who deal with worse all the time.

I replied: "You've never had cancer then, I take it..." I know it's stupid to engage, but I wanted him to know that on the end of his tongue there is a real person.
