It all began when Twitter user Willian Horst expressed their admiration for Arnold’s new series Fubar sharing a popular GIF from one of Arnold’s films, Predator. The GIF showcases Arnold’s epic handshake with Carl Weathers. The caption alongside the GIF reads, “Just finished watching #FUBAR on @NetflixBrasil. @Schwarzenegger is back! We need season 2!” Arnold quoted the tweet and wrote, “Thanks for watching!”

The tweet garnered attention from netizens and received numerous responses, but one reply stood out for its unkind tone. The Twitter user Adam Sattler commented, “That’s Arnold’s bicep in Predator back in the 1980s. He won’t show his biceps now. It’s disappointing that he doesn’t keep them looking good. Even at 75, a man can have nice biceps.” This comment didn’t go down well with Arnold’s fans, who bashed the troll left and right. Later, the man himself entered the scene and shut down the troll without even saying a word.Take a look at Arnold’s tweet below:

I met him once in LA while he was promoting Last Action Hero. He is one of the kindest people you will ever meet.” Another added, “Great pump, Arnold!” “I wish I could look this good at 75!” commented a third. A fourth shared, “At some point a man needs to rest. He has done so much for bodybuilding and inspired young men everywhere. He deserves a break. His legacy will live on, inspiring us all.” “Still got it!” joined a fifth.
