    bamf of the year, go tom! :P

  2. You can’t talk crap on the internet and bitch out when someone gives it back. Tom was right in his response. I myself am still hoping for half-day off.

  3. Manpreet Rai says:

    Absolutely….Hahaha he made a stupid comment without knowing shit.

  4. David Stone says:

    Sounds like he got back what he was dishing out. …and couldn’t handle it.

  5. kgal1298 says:

    I don’t blame him for reacting and in all due defense Tom is retired he doesn’t have to work again the media can spear him for it, but he doesn’t have to answer to them at all. He’s not risking anything all he does is travel and does what he wants now so with that said if I were Tom I wouldn’t care so much. Though the last tweet was a little like dude you didn’t need to point out the account was deleted we already noticed most likely.

  6. Chance says:

    Tom doesn’t take bullshit. Props to Tom.

  7. Jay V says:

    A little of both. Tom didn’t have to be a dick about being right. On the other hand, he did sell MySpace to some Fox something place who ruined the MS experience for us all.

    1. Jay V says:

      Ummm… I meant the MySpace experience …. Not to be confused with the multiple sclerosis experience, which I would never wish on anybody.

  8. Scott says:

    Myspace Tom is a BAMF… Seriously if Tom wasn’t a famous figure, this wouldn’t be news and Tom would automatically be in the right. Tapia had it coming, if you can dish it you should be able to take it as well. I applaud Tom!

  9. Adum says:

    Whether he’s famous or not. he did what anybody else would have done.

  10. Paul Redmond says:

    How is that being a douche in anyway shape or form?
    The guy insulted him, he insulted the guy back.
    There’s nothing wrong with that.

  11. Nic J. Shaw says:

    All I know is; Tom needs to update his profile pic …

    1. Jonathan says:

      He would love to but it’s the only actual way people will recognize him.

  12. Michael Fairhurst says:

    He got exactly what he deserved! If you say something like that, you have to expect to get it back

  13. Rob Delaney says:

    “A million dollars isn’t cool. What to know what’s cool? A billion dollars.”

  14. Tom is a BAMF. Dude totally had what was coming to him.

  15. BAMF I lol’d for a good while after I saw that

  16. Someone talked shit and the guy was able to get back at him. I would have done the same thing.

  17. Jazzy Quick says:

    Tom was a bamf in this case

  18. Like my grandpa always said, “if you are going to insult someone, expect to be insulted back”.

    Also, the fact that Polo even brought up myspace in the conversation shows he was just trying to verbally stab at Tom. Tom had all right to say what he did.

  19. Cedric Maes says:

    he got what was comming for him

  20. How is a he a douche for defending himself? I mean, could have picked something wittier to say maybe but hey, don’t try to burn the guy and expect nothing in return.

  21. I thought it was an incredibly appropriate response, one of several Tom had last night. Well played on his part.

  22. I think Tom was justified in his response and that it was an awesome burn *ConfessionBear* Also, do the math… If Tom sold MySpace in 05… and FB was JUST expanding by then… doesn’t that mean that when MySpace lost liveliness, Tom had already sold it? Dude was a douche and a freaking moron… Thus, he deserved it :)

  23. Kevin Nguyen says:

    Tom’s response was justified imo

  24. Meli Mazo says:

    The dude tried to offend Tom, so Tom responded.

  25. Polo deserved that response,

  26. And he STILL hasn’t changed his profile picture. lol

  27. Ethan Grimes says:

    Ironically on G+ Tom has posted a little more depth about the exchange and how different social networks react to different personalities. Interesting, not new conclusions that he reaches, but still interesting.

  28. The dude got what was coming to him. The media is a lil too knee-jerk about these things. I basically think of media today as an insolent child that cries over anything and everything for the heck of it. It’s pathetic really.

    Tom, for the first time since you sold that turd called MySpace to a senile old Australian man, you’re a BAMF!

  29. Tom is a BAMF!! Take that Tapia!!

  30. James Yim says:

    If he keeps this up, myspacetom might become hip again.

  31. C Sharp says:

    Doesn’t change the fact that he couldn’t keep a social network alive though does it?

    1. He sold it in 2005. In 2005, Myspace was on top of the world. It was whoever bought it that ruined it.

  32. It was such an awesome comeback! Totally got what he deserved. I laughed so hard when I saw this! xD

  33. Tom Anderson is a BAMF, he is one of the pioneers of social media ,and a super intelligent dude!

  34. Juan Palomino says:

    Tom did what he could to keep MySpace alive in his hands.Accord to his Twitter post, he sold MySpace for $580 million in 2005, and he’s a millionaire. Well done to Tom. He deserves to be BAMF!

  35. Whacked Cat says:

    Rich BAMFs usually have a bit of douche in them… so maybe he’s both.

  36. As Steve once said in a blooper reel: If you can dish it, you can take it

  37. sean says:


  38. Alan Carter says:

    DNFTT. . . But awesome Tom, awesome.

  39. gw232 says:

    OWNED! I love it.

  40. boredgeek says:

    Toms response was the only response that was appropriate!
