Butts shared that he put the video on vacation with his fiancé and celebrated his 40th birthday.

& # 39; It's hard to be angry with an ocean front and private pool, & # 39; he said.

But the reactions continued after his vacation and Butts thought people were just bullies.

& # 39; There were some really awful things, & # 39; he said. & # 39; They took my reaction video and changed it so that they had me respond to other things.

& # 39; Part of it was funny, but there were some awful things, anti-Semitism such as Holocaust images, racial things, people who really try to bully.

Nevertheless, the supporting tweets from Hamill have definitely changed the Butts atmosphere.

& # 39; When Mark Hamill tweeted me, & # 39; he said, & my hands started shaking.

& # 39; From my youth, Star Wars has been so important in my life.

& # 39; I joked that I started crying again, but I did. The character he portrayed was such an influence on me. & # 39;
