Dancing man, Sean O’Brien, an England native, was body-shamed by the trollers online while he was dancing. Moronic, right?
The trollers posted his pictures with absolutely ugly caption like, “Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing” on the website 4chan.
Instead of having fun with the dancing man, the trollers who were totally strangers, as well, bullied him online and made fun of Sean O’Brien by laughing at him.
Dancing man immediately stopped after he saw the trollers laughing, which showed that bullying can badly affect people and the victims can lose their confidence at times too.
But how amazing it is that in the world of trollers we have kind people like Cassandra Fairbanks who didn’t encourage the bullying but instead encouraged the dancing man to show his moves to them.
Yes, you read it right as Cassandra Fairbanks who is also a social activist got the photo of dancing man being bullied and body-shamed by some morons and invited him to a VIP dance party in Los Angeles where he could dance with some really cool and awesome ladies.
So, a campaign to find the dancing man started. Cassandra sent a message for Sean O’Brien as well and as soon as he came to know that a part of world is finding him; he got connected with them sooner.
Then later, the dancing man – a nickname given to Sean by the ladies of Los Angeles including Cassandra, was flown to California where he was treated completely like a star and a sensation.
The Dance Free Movement organized the festivities and about more than one thousand people appeared in the private dance party to dance with Sean O’Brien at a popular club in Los Angeles.
Sean dancing in the party with people was actually a moment of shame and defeat of the trollers who bullied him. Also, they might had learnt a lesson and not bully anyone again as it’s immoral and totally unacceptable.
However, Sean O’Brien became a viral sensation and he also gave his first ever interview on the TODAY show on 22nd of May and fun part was that he got to dance with Meghan Trainor in the Rockefeller Plaza as well.
The dancing man also threw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium and had met Neil Diamond as well. With about 64k followers on Twitter, Sean is now a famous man.
Also, he had several interviews to attend with press from United States, Germany, United Kingdom and Japan. Talking about his experience, Sean O’Brien once said, “I was amazed at how far the story reached and how much it has resonated with people from all walks of life.”
However, the one bad bullying experience of the dancing man completely changed his life in a much positive way as he became more famous and viral after that plus respected and loved by many rather than being bullied. The bullying surely proved to be “a blessing in disguise” for Sean O’Brien.
