Weâ€™ve all been there: you stumble on to a YouTube video of skateboarding cats, scroll down to the comment section, and find people arguing about Ukraineâ€™s foreign policy. We donâ€™t even act surprised when we see random, disruptive, often cruel comments anymore. In 2016, comment section trolls are truly an embedded component of the internet, and on this first episode of Chips With Everything, weâ€™re asking why â€“ whatâ€™s the point of being cruel below the line?
We chat with Becky Gardiner, former comment editor at the Guardian, and Lucy Moon, a vlogger on YouTube.
