    ABOUT. DANG. TIME.

    A lot of us got disgusted with the state of humanity yesterday after it came out that Robin Williams' daughter was bullied off social media in the wake of her father's death, in part by two scum-of-the-Earth trolls who sent her photoshopped pictures of her father's body.
