You never know when a disgusting creep will appear from a dark corner of the internet. Using its anonymous nature, keyboard warriors are sharing some of the most disturbing thoughts they have, and even little kids can become subjects of their hateful treatment. Recently, Twitter trolls used a picture of Sophia, a severely disabled 9-year-old girl to promote abortion. Her mom responded in a way every mother would – she started a war against hate speech.

The Weavers daughter Sophia was born with facial deformities as well as deformities to her hands and feet

Some people are heartless. You see parents struggling to take care of a child who is deformed through no fault of theirs, and you still go ahead to make fun of them!

Why would you even imagine yourself kissing a child? Of the mega seriousness of this thread, it is kissing her that has crossed your mind, na wa oo.
