The same way some people are thrilled about the news, some are triggered. A particular user with the handle @MrTicketTaker states that he is not thrilled about the news and hopes it dies down soon. He went thus: “I hope this whole thing dies. I don’t look forward to hearing about this for the next 9 months while I sift through the latest ADA news. I hope you both just agree to let this die and donate to whatever charity.”
