Sometimes, the news cycle gets incredibly depressing and can drag you down. So, when there is a heartwarming story, it's worth celebrating.

This is an example of just that.

A homophobic woman wrote in to the agony aunt Dear Abby saying that she and her husband didn't want to invite their gay neighbours to dinner at their house.

Needless to say, Abby was having none of it, and well and truly schooled them.

A Reddit user spotted the snippet and shared it on the r/MurderedByWords channel, and it's a must-read.

Abby, we well and truly salute you.

People on Reddit and social media were equally impressed by the withering put-down.

One commented:

'I don't want to be nice to you, but how dare you be nice to me.' And they will never see the irony in this!

Another added:

How does someone take the time to carefully compose a letter detailing their own hypocrisy and not see it?

A third summed it up:

Murdered in print.
