The TV personality has slammed haters on social media who have sent horrible comments about her son.

The online troll, Mark Williams has since deleted his Twitter account and apologised for the ‘immature and thoughtless comments’.

He added: “I would like to sincerely apologise first of all to Katie Price, Harvey and their family for the immature and thoughtless comments I have made.”

Mr Williams has confirmed that this incident has cost him his job.

He later added: ‘To everyone who I have upset and angered with my comments please know this is not how I truly feel, the comments were thoughtless and I realise I showed no consideration for anyone else’s feelings and deeply regret my actions.

Price had previously tweeted that she was thankful for the public’s support against trolls, adding:  “This is something I feel strongly about and will always raise awareness for.”

Like she always says, ‘never underestimate the Pricey’…
