THE Daily Mail’s editorial meetings must be great. Back in February 2013, Laura Cox noted that nasty people had been saying nasty things about a baby. The headline told readers:

Twitter trolls target Fearne Cotton’s baby boy over parents’ decision to name him Rex

Then in March, Laura Cox noted that after Wayne Rooney’s second son had been born, nasty people had been saying nasty things about a baby:

ONCE, his arrival would have been marked with a simple newspaper announcement. Sadly for Klay Rooney, times have changed. His parents chose to share their joy at his birth yesterday on Twitter – and it didn’t take long for the internet trolls to respond.

As ever, the people on twitter were “bullies”.

A short time later Claudia Connell told, erm, Mail readers about Wayne Rooney’s son Kai:

Naming your new baby the B-list way…

Is that just catty or bullying? And someone tell Cox not to both sitting on Twitter all day looking for trolls. A quick walk about the Mail’s newsroom should provide rich pickings…
