The tweet caught Vonn’s attention, and instead of letting the troll get away with the comment, she gave him a wise comeback. “I must be horribly unlikable. Maybe we lift each other up instead of tearing others down. Proud of Mikaela. Not proud of your comments and I’m sure she’d feel the same. Have a lovely day,” Vonn replied.

The legendary skier’s fans and followers rushed to her support and applauded Vonn for her “savage” reply.  Soon after Shiffrin’s historic success, the entire sports world rejoiced with joy and wished the athlete for her achievement.
