Even the 'Humans of New York' Guy -- the Nicest Man on the Internet -- Has Had It With Donald Trump

Everyone loves the Humans of New York guy. He is peaceful, he is kind, and he takes beautiful photographs of beautiful people. He's a calm and positive presence on the Internet, but the HONY guy finally reached the limit of his niceness, and that limit is, to no one's surprise, Donald Trump.


The HONY guy (for the record, his name is Brandon Stanton, but really -- we all know he's just the HONY guy) posted an open letter to Trump on his Facebook, and of course it's gently and beautifully written. It's a tribute to the people that Donald Trump hates, and a tribute to the people in America fighting that hatred.

"But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and prejudice," he writes. "The time is always now."

Judging from the overwhelming response, the HONY guy is onto something. This stuff is resonating with people all over the world -- one commenter said, "Thank you, Brandon. We need more LOVE and KINDNESS in the world, not hate and fear. You have shown us that!!" 

(Editor's note: When she says "Brandon," she's talking about the HONY guy.)

Another wrote:

I am a Muslim a Pakistani and I want every single person on earth to know that I do not hate you. No matter which religion you belong what your sexual preference is what color you are I do not hate you. This is not what my religion stands for. This is not what I stand for. I stand for peace equality justice and love. May peace be upon you all.

For the most part, the people who responded to the post have the same brand of fear for Trump as the HONY guy does. As inspiring as it is to see so many people speak out against him, it's more terrifying that this is necessary at all.

Trump has done and said a lot of terrible things. But if it's enough to make even the HONY guy upset, you know he's gone too far.
