American teenage sensation Coco Gauff took to social media yesterday to share a series of photographs of herself in her new stylish clothes and shoes in New York City. Although the majority of the comments from friends and fans were oozing positivity, there was one follower who tried spoiling the party for the American.
The troll brought up comparisons between Serena Williams and Gauff that he must have read earlier and tried to belittle the latter for having failed to win a Grand Slam title yet.
"You got time to dress like a clown but not bag any Grand Slams? Hahaha. And people really thought you were the next Serena," the person wrote.
Gauff emphatically shuts down troll: "Get off the couch and touch some grass. Meat riding and hating is an illness. I hope you get well soon"
However, Gauff destroyed the person with one reply, suggesting he get over his hatred, get off the couch, and find a job.
"@wwthomas You got time to comment bs like a clown and not get a job? Hahaha. And you really thought you ate. That's why nobody hits yo line GOOFY. Thx for the follow back tho. Get off the couch and touch some grass. Meat riding and hating is an illness. I hope you get well soon," replied the French Open finalist.
Gauff not only shut the troll down, she pinned his comment for everyone to read. Fans thoroughly enjoyed her response and felt that online harassers should be taught such lessons.
"She had time today and I love it. Gathered him up. Internet trolls and keyboard warriors are so sick," a fan tweeted.

"The fact that she pinned the tweet to expose him no that’s some queen sh*t," a user wrote.
"She had time today and she ate him up," another tweet read.
"Coco Gauff legit woke up and chose violence!" said another fan.
"lol, not the pin of shame 😭 She dragged his ass" exclaimed another user.
