Anyone can punch back

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

When I was in elementary school, the teachers used to say something along the lines of “It doesn’t matter who starts the fight as everyone is in the wrong.” That’s bullshit. If someone punches you or tries to punch you, it’s your moral obligation to punch them back, if only so you teach that one person that there are repercussions for what they did, so they’ll think twice before doing it to someone else in the future.

The reason I bring this up at all is that I’ve seen fans get bothered whenever someone famous fires back at a troll or someone being a dick on Twitter.

They aren’t obligated to take it at all. It’s probably the more moral choice to fire back so that they do their small part in stopping this kind of behavior.

Basically if you’re willing to throw a punch, you have to be willing to take one.
