Because the internet is anonymous and some feel that it's ok to cuss others out when they're hiding behind a screen instead of in person.

It's common to a lot of internet games. Just mute them and don't let what a total stranger on the internet says get to you.

It's not anonymity by itself, it's lack of consequences for actions. People will be complete jerks if they believe nothing bad will happen to them if they do so. At low levels, there's absolutely no consequences for bad behavior since accounts are completely disposable - people get banned, they'll just start a new one. Behavior grows more rare as consequences start to exist in terms of chat bans or people not wanting to lose an account, so it does get much better as you level up.

There will always be some people who have bad behavior, though, either because they don't believe anything will happen to them (haven't been banned yet) or because they don't care. Like Cat Eyed Liar says, just be proactive in muting people.
