Haters

Dear Madame L,

Why does it seem like whenever a nice person starts to be successful, all these haters come out of the woodwork to say mean things about the person. Case in point: Arthur Chu, the guy who's been winning on Jeopardy! on TV. I've heard that people are tweeting and posting on Facebook and whatever that he's arrogant and rude, and things like that. So I checked on YouTube and watched a bit, and it looks to me like he's just focusing on the game, which is what he should be doing, right?

Sincerely,

Why Can't We All Just Get Along?


Dear Nice Person,

Thanks for the question. Madame L hasn't watched Jeopardy! for just about ever, so she had to look for an episode on YouTube. For any of her Dear Readers who may be equally clueless, here is Arthur Chu's first appearance on Jeopardy!

Madame L does not understand how people could hate this guy. It looks to Madame L like he's just a serious and focused guy who is doing his best to win the game, which is what anyone should be doing when they're playing a game, right? Maybe they're jealous or envious. Maybe they need to get a life. Madame L does not know. Anyone else?

Best,

Madame L

Envy knoweth no bounds.
This happens to ANYONE who is successful. Hillary. Obama. Pope Francis.
All the trolls come out of their caves in the dark.
