Katie Price has pledged to name and shame online trolls who are abusing her disabled son, Harvey. She has waged war on trolls by screen grabbing images from the trolls’ social media feeds and using her own social media accounts to name and shame.

Using her Instagram and Twitter which have nearly 1 million and 2 million followers respectively, the 37-year-old mum is calling out her son’s abusers – many who have criticised her and abused Harvey because of his disability.

Mum-of-five, Katie says she’s “angry and upset” at mocking images of Harvey who is blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome.  The illness causes 13-year-old Harvey, to be constantly hungry.

Some of the bullies have already apologised to the star, but she told the Sun newspaper that she wanted them to actually meet with her son.

She said,

‘Some of the people have apologised already but I want them to meet Harvey and talk to him and I want to ask why they did it.’

One repeat troll took to Facebook to say that he was a nice person,

‘For the record. I never made any of these Harvey Price pictures I just posted it. 

‘I would like to appologise (sic) to Katie Price and family and this will never happen again. (sic)

‘I am a lovely person inside and I think Harvey is a lovely person. I really do. It was very immature of myself.

Perpetrators of online bullying or trolling, including homophobic abuse could find themselves in jail after the Government announced plans last year to change the law to increase the maximum sentence for the offence of sending certain items with the intent to cause distress or anxiety.

This will mean more serious offences can be dealt with in the Crown Court and there will not be a time limit for police and Crown Prosecution Service to bring a prosecution.
