Jaime Cochran is a 20-something professional living in Chicago. She works all day on a computer, but her real labour, the one she loves, is hated around the world. Cochran is a self-identified troll.
It sounds cruel. Trolling in the eyes of many is a deeply disturbing and sinister occupation. But Cochran insists there’s method to her meanness. She declares herself a performance artist, compares herself to Andy Kaufman, and describes her trolling as “more cerebral than abrasive”. According to this young troll, she’s out for scalps, not souls.
I think she does it for attention she wouldnt otherwise get; sure she may be 20yo, but her pictures could be mistaken for double that !
TB adds: Well looking at her I can well imagine her living under a bridge but only because she does meth under it.
