Curtis Woodhouse meets Twitter troll on ITV's Daybreak
FORMER Grimsby Town player Curtis Woodhouse appeared on ITV's Daybreak programme this morning to meet the Twitter troll who hurled abuse at him online.
James O'Brien apologised to the boxer live on television. He said, "I was really childish. Looking back on it, I realised that I had done a wrong thing."
Woodhouse told Daybreak: "If you are in the public eye, I don't think it's right that you should be abused, your family should be abused, your children should be abused, I don't think anyone has got the right to do that."
As reported, O'Brien, who tweeted as 'The Master', attacked the footballer turned boxer over his English light-welterweight title defeat.

He tweeted: "Haha, you lost you silly mug, fight a 10-year-old next time if you want to actually win."
But Woodhouse offered £1,000 to anyone who could provide him with O'Brien's home address.
He threatened to drive 60 miles to O'Brien's house in South Yorkshire and later posted a photograph of his street sign as warning to him.
Woodhouse also discussed the Twitter saga on Jeremy Vine's BBC Radio 2 show this afternoon. You can listen to the show by clicking here.
