One famous social media content creator has opened up on exactly what he thinks about internet trolls.
Harrison Leigh, one of the sons from The Famileigh, has explained how he deals with hate after being inundated with angry messages.
The social media star took to TikTok to explain exactly how he deals with 'hate comments'.
"This is an interesting question," he began, reading out a question one follower had written to him. "How do you ignore hate any tips for people?"
Harrison went on: "I get a lot of hate, everyone gets a lot of hate, especially if you're putting yourself out there and you're getting, you know, thousands or millions of views.
"It's inevitable, especially online."
He said this made it 'so easy to write something anonymously'.
"So my advice, realistically, would be," Harrison advised, "just delete and block, don't bother. Just just ignore it."
Speaking from experience, the content creator said responding to the comment is 'just adding fuel to the fire', before telling his fans: "So just delete the comment and block them."
He went on to share his confusion at other people who don't remove their hate comments, asking: "Why aren't you deleting these?
"Because what I've also found is, if people are commenting, and then other people look at the comments, it kind of fuels it.
"If there's hate comments, people almost then jump on the bandwagon. It's quite phenomenal, really, when you think about it."
He added: "What's the point in having them people looking at your content, and they don't even like you?"
Harrison also noted that most of the people sending the hate comments 'have got no profile pictures' or 'videos' on their page.
"So if they're giving you hate, or criticism, you need to take it with a pinch of salt, because they're just not on your wavelength," he noted.
"If they're not creating content themselves, I'm not going to lie. Their opinion is pretty invalid."
Instead, Harrison says, people should 'really take in the nice comments' because that's what 'the reflection of the video should be'.
Finishing up the response, he summarised: "So yeah, just delete, block, ignore and just remember that the people that are doing that [are a] waste of space.
"Because ultimately, even if you don't like content, I would never put hate on a video."
"Guess what I would do?" Harrison concluded. "I'd scroll, or I might block the person if I really don't want to see their content. "I'd never leave hate - just a waste of time."
