John Scalzi Turning Internet Troll's 'Racist Sexist Homophobic' Comments Into Donations For Civil Rights And LGBT Groups (VIDEO)

Science fiction writer John Scalzi had a monstrous problem with a troll.

Not the kind that go after goats on a bridge, but the kind that say hateful comments on websites.

One troll was particularly noxious, with trash talk that consisted mostly of comments that Scalzi thought were racist, sexist and/or homophobic, according to the Guardian.

But Scalzi is getting even, by pledging $5 to civil rights and LGBT charities every time the man he dubbed "the Racist Sexist Homophobic Dipshit" posts an entry on his own site in which he uses Scalzi's name or a mean nickname.

He's currently raised $1,000 so far and others are joining in with "dipshit donations," according to this interview with Scalzi on HuffPost Live.
