'So, I need to get this off my chest. I have said before how I hate these Broadwayworld chat boards, but yet I occasionally take a look, only to get burned every time by some hater. Well, last night I went up on my lines during one of my #'s in Chicago. It happens... Well, wouldn't you know it, one of these chatroom bullies happened to be in the audience and was obviously frothing at the mouth to get home and blast away at me. "I cant remember lines", I'm not professional", "they feel bad for me"..blah blah blah.
Now, I am aware that because of what I do, I am a target for all sorts of judgment and criticism. I accept that. But for all the people who sit at home and use their words anonymously as tools to make others feel bad, so they can feel good, you will never feel good. Real happiness comes from within. As I learn this myself, I can tell you that with every drop of vitriol that comes from your lips, you are poisoning your own soul. I will sit here for an hour, be annoyed at what you said, do some deep breathing and then let it go. You, will undoubtedly stew in your own unhappiness and dissatisfaction with life, pick your next target, sit in the dark in the balcony, as you did with me and wait for them to make a mistake so you can once again, hide anonymously in front of your computer screen and say "Ha! see everyone..see, they're no good, they're not deserving of success, they're phonies".
The truth is, you could never in a million years do what it is we do 8 times a week. You would step out on stage and piss your pants. So Please hater, don't feel bad for me as you said you do. You need to feel bad for yourself for being the kind of person who gets off on trying hurt others.
Finally, to all my fans who will read this, please don't comment with defending me. I'm not looking for compliments or "yeah you tell em Adam". Just try and remember the sentiment, next time you want to use your computer as an outlet for bullying..'
Adam also later posted in reply to some comments

Personally Im sick of people playing the bullying card when people dare to criticise their performance and I have lost all respect for him now. Sad really
