    McDermott said that he told Liam that the rude comments said more about the commenters themselves.

    “‘Think about it, son. You have a busy life,’ ” he said. “‘You have school, you got sports; do you think you have time to go on Instagram, scroll through the people that you’re following, and make a negative comment about somebody?’ I said, ‘No, you don’t. You don’t, and if you did, you’d fill your time with something else. So think about how sick these people are that they have to do that.’ “
