Katie Price begged to remove son Harvey’s Instagram account after abuse

Fans are outraged

Fans have begged Katie Price to disable her son Harvey's Instagram comments after he was cruelly mocked by online trolls.

The nasty comments came after 16-year-old Harvey's account, which is run by Katie, showed a picture of him holding a drawing of his mum on the Gatwick Express.

It was captioned: "Love drawing me and mummy and Gatwick express."

Please don’t allow people to comment- protect him.

Many praised the sweet picture but after lots of unkind comments, fans pleaded with Katie, 40, to disable the account's comments section to stop Harvey being ridiculed.

One wrote: "Please don’t allow people to comment- protect him."

A second added: "I agree with what someone else said switch off the comments option, it’s not fair that he should take this abuse, please protect him from it, good work Harvey you're a star."

A third commented: "Katie is allowing this!! She knows people will slate him and I believe it's to prove a point!! It's not fair and comments should be disabled."

Harvey is partially blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome.

Katie has been fighting tirelessly for "Harvey's Law", which, if passed, would see online trolls prosecuted for their verbal abuse.

She began a petition to make trolling a criminal offence and it received over 220,000 signatures last year. MPs also acknowledged that online abuse should be made illegal last month.

Speaking in parliament last year, Katie said: “I know I’m here because it started off because Harvey and his disabilities but this isn’t just for people with disabilities. It will help everybody."

Earlier this month, the-mum-of-five spoke on her plans to move Harvey into residential care at his school as it has become harder to look after him full-time at home.

ED! has contacted a representative for Katie for comment.
