Katie Price hits out at ‘shocking’ trolling of disabled son Harvey in emotional TV appearance

The "innocent" teen "wouldn't hurt a fly"

Mum-of-five Katie Price has made an emotional plea for online trolls to stop targeting her disabled son Harvey.

Harvey, 17, is autistic, partially blind and suffers from Prader-Willi Sydrome, which affects his growth.

Katie and Harvey appeared on Channel 5 News to announce that Harvey is now an ambassador for autism charity Anna Kennedy Online.

“It’s just so shocking,” she explained. “He’s innocent, he wouldn’t harm a fly.”

And, while she hates the trolling, Katie revealed that she thinks “it’s good” that Harvey is in the public eye.

It’s so shocking. He’s innocent, he wouldn’t harm a fly.

“I think it’s good that he’s in public eye because there’s so many people out there who are scared, they don’t know how to cope or they don’t go out because they think people might look at them,” she said.

Katie added: “Why should Harvey be hidden away? Everyone loves him, he’s got such a following. Just because of his disabilities, why should be be treated any different?”

Harvey also revealed what he thought being an ambassador meant.

“Don’t be horrible,” the teenager told the cameras.

Katie – who is campaigning for Harvey’s Law to fight online trolling – recently asked her fans to “name and shame” a troll who called Harvey “fat”.

Harvey, too, has taken to Instagram to send the same message, asking his mum’s followers to not be “horrible”.
