The internet is filled with people who like to write hateful things to complete strangers, essentially anonymously. While a lot of it gets brushed to the side, there are some instances in which justice gets served.

Even on the internet, you have to be accountable for your actions, as a Cleveland Cavaliers fan learned recently when he got his Twitter fingers going.

It all started with an innocent tweet by Sydel Curry, the sister of Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry:

Sydel Curry @sydelcurry

Wheels up to Cleveland w. Mama and Granny ๐Ÿค—

Just a nice tweet about her family. Nothing for anyone to get upset about, right? Apparently not:

If you know anything about the Currys, family is very important to them. That's why Sydel responded, leading to a conversation:

Sydel Curry @sydelcurry

Sydel Curry @sydelcurry

Curry eventually hit the fan with the block button:

While Sydel confronted the Cavs fan, someone else alerted the person's employerโ€”and that prompted the termination of said employee:

@MapleJordan43 T.Y. We expect our employees to conduct themselves in a professional manor at all times Zero tolerance towards Hate speech

@FrankMontalvan @cheryll @warriorsworld In our business we expect our employees to conduct themselves in a professional manor at all times.

Let that be a lesson to everyone on Twitter. Not only should you not spew hate "for fun" (because it's not funny), but you can also face serious repercussions.

That may seem like a crushing blow to anyone, but according to the fan, it was totally worth it:

Moe Wahdan @moe_wahdan

Hey right ?!? I lost my job but they lost the game. Who really lost here ?๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ https://t.co/IUg4TNY18T

Riiiiiiight.

Ultimately, the Cleveland fan's now-former employer apologized to Sydel:

James Wise @jameswiseHWPG

Apology for the #Cavs fan who was fired for harassing @sydelcurry & @itsRileyCurry @warriorsworld @BroBible https://t.co/rdK5Vn1A4q
