Bullies. Where are they now?


Nah, just kidding. They’re all over the place. We learned that from a Twitter thread about ’em that attracted a lot of attention recently.

Writer and Producer Tze Chun – known for his work on Once Upon a Time, Gotham, and the upcoming Gremlins series – posted the following question out of curiosity:

And the responses that started flooding in were wild. 

15. How the turn tables have…

You don’t know what you’ve done until you find yourself in those shoes.

14. Names in lights

Nothing hits harder than a former tormentor’s success.

13. Expect the expected

Guess there’s no huge surprise there.


12. Spoiled rotten

Gotta love the American justice system.

11. Serving time

Seriously, SO many of these are prison themed.

10. Riding high

I’m sure he cries about it into his piles of money.

9. Smile for the camera

Schadenfreude doesn’t get a whole lot stronger than this.

8. A bloody mess

You gotta wonder: do they regret it? Do they even remember?

7. Not like this

Revenge is a dish probably best not served.

6. Creepin’ back in

Sorry, I couldn’t hear you over the AUDACITY.

5. Catching up

No shame on bar tending, but screw anybody who tries to push you down to elevate themselves.

4. Building lies

“Dude even we’re smart enough to listen to doctors.” – actual sheep

3. Fun in the sun!

Yeah that’s…pretty much the state pastime now.

2. Consider the following

When your haters become your fans.


1. Judge not

Aaaaaaand we’re gonna end on a huge bummer.

At the end of the day, all you can do to defeat the ghosts of you past is to live your best life now. The sense of justice we crave for the people who hurt us will never be perfectly executed. But their mistakes are on them, not us.

What are your old bullies up to?
