    Someone Just Wrote A Hilarious Response To All The Pokémon Go Haters

    "The world is a pretty horrible place at the moment, so what's wrong with people going out and enjoying themselves?"

    by ,

    Pokémon Go has brought out the best and worst of humanity. For (arguably) the latter, a man in Vancouver posted this sign outside of an apartment building telling players to "get a life" last week:

    The man also described the game as "the stupidest thing I have ever seen."

    But one man became fed up with people who are fed up. Joe Heenan, a 42-year-old comedian from Scotland, posted his own hilarious lawn sign, telling players to "enjoy life" in response:

    The epic rebuttal reads:

    Joe Heenan

    Heenan has never played Pokémon Go before and has no interest in it, but he told BuzzFeed News he "just got fed up with all the negativity surrounding it."

    "The world is a pretty horrible place at the moment, so what's wrong with people going out and enjoying themselves?" he added.

    And people are praising Heenan for his sign, and reminding people of how "awesome" the game can be, too:

    Heenan told BuzzFeed News that he didn't expect his sign to get this much attention. He just thought a positive message was needed right now.

    "The world is too cynical a place now and I just thought a positive message is what was needed," he said.

    CORRECTION

    Joe Heenan is 42 years old. An earlier version of this post misstated his age.
