July 10 (UPI) -- Patton Oswalt has responded to critics of his recent engagement to actress Meredith Salenger on Facebook by sharing a blog written in his defense.
"This is so amazing. And SO well-written," the actor wrote on Saturday alongside a link to a blog written by Erica Roman titled "A Widow's Rage Defense Against Patton Oswalt's Engagement."
"I expected some bitter grub worms to weigh in (anonymously, always always always) with their much-needed opinions when I announced my engagement last week. And I decided to ignore them," Oswalt continued.
"But yeah, I felt this rage. And Erica articulated it better than I could have ever hoped. So there you go. Thank you, Erica."
In the blog post, Roman congratulated Oswalt and said "ignorant, judgement" trolls were not entitled to an opinion.
Oswalt became engaged to Salenger on Thursday following the death of his wife, writer Michelle McNamara in April 2016. Oswalt shared a daughter, 8-year-old Alice with McNamara.
"It's official. I'm the luckiest happiest girl in the universe!!!! I love you @pattonoswalt I love you Alice Oswalt!" Salenger wrote on Twitter at the time.
