The world can be a bitterly cruel place sometimes. Though over the centuries we seem to have gotten far better when it comes to condemning prejudice, there’s no doubting it still exists.
Perhaps that’s one thing social media has to answer for, the fact that people can now bully and harass others online whilst hiding behind the anonymity of a computer. Worse still, in most cases the offending parties get away with it.
One father has hit out at disgusting trolls who mocked a video of his little girl eating her birthday cake. The clip shows Megan Gavin, who has Down syndrome, messy from eating her cake, but there were commenters who called her a “downie” and a “retard”.
Needless to say, proud dad Scott, from Merseyside, England, was left appalled, having shared the video celebrate Megan’s first birthday.
Speaking to Metro, he said: “My shock went straight to anger. Obviously I wanted to go and find these people.
“But after a few hours of sitting down and thinking, I thought I’m not going to let some idiot make me angry and ruin my baby’s day.
“So I’ve turned it into a positive thing and decided from now on I’m going to educate the uneducated idiots.
“I’m going to share the love and I’ll do that by sharing pictures of Megan.”
