A PR executive is facing the sack after he posted an insulting tweet about journalist Grace Dent during her appearance on Sunday night’s Have I Got News For You.

Mufadal Juwaji, who works for Hill+Knowlton PR firm, Tweeted: “@gracedent reminds me of a girlfriend I once had. By girlfriend I mean that time I accidentally made love to an ugly abhorrent horse.”

Internet abuse, or “trolling” has been a topic of debate recently, especially since Daily Mail writer, Samantha Brick, penned a particularly controversial column about being hated by other women.

Dent replied, @gracedent: “I’m wondering, as a public relations person for a firm I work with, what your thinking was in sending me this message?

@mufadal: “it was naive and ill-warranted. I won’t delete it, as I ought to bare the full brunt of my idiocy.”

@gracedent: “You’ll bear the brunt of your idiocy at 10am tomorrow morning when you’re unemployed. Good luck.”

Noel Edmonds is calling for more online responsibility after he met a student who set up a Facebook page entitled “Somebody please kill Noel Edmonds”.

In his BBC Three programme, The Anti-Social Network, Richard Bacon revealed that he and his family had received regular online abuse from one anonymous individual for the last two years.

Dent is a well-known Twitter user, and recently wrote a book called How To Leave Twitter, about the highs and lows of the social networking site.

The book included advice on how to deal with internet trolls.
