Bully issues apology for abusing ex-Grimsby Town player Curtis Woodhouse on Twitter
THE Twitter troll who was tracked down by boxer Curtis Woodhouse has apologised for the abuse he sent to the former Grimsby Town player.
James O'Brien, using the handle @jimmyob88, taunted Woodhouse (@WoodhouseCurtis) on the social network, calling him a "complete disgrace" and a "laughable joke".
However, the cyber bully got the shock of his life when the boxer figured out where O'Brien lived and tweeted a picture of the street name sign.
Now, after being tracked down by The Mirror, 24-year-old O'Brien has apologised, claiming peer pressure was the reason behind his online outburst.
It was also reported that O'Brien had previously targeted a host of other celebrities on Twitter including Victoria Beckham, Davina McCall, Katie Price, Lennox Lewis, Rio Ferdinand and Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan.
