Neighbor’s Hateful Letter For Autistic Boy Outrages Community, Goes Viral
A hateful letter about an autistic boy, has gone viral and has a community banding together. It’ll break your heart and make your blood boil.
The letter refers to 10 year old Max Begley, who is severely autistic, as a ‘retard‘ and a ‘wild animal kid’ that needs to be ‘euthanized.’ Be advised, the letter is filled with strong language that may be offensive.
The rant was mailed anonymously to the boy’s grandmother, where he spends his mornings playing in the backyard saying, ‘You selfishly put your kid outside and let him be a nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!‘
Toronto’s City News interviewed the family, who says he likes to be outside. Since his mother has MS, she can’t take him to a park where he may run off. So he plays in his grandmother’s fenced in backyard, where he’ll be safe.
If that’s not bad enough, the letter, filled with mistakes, continues ‘they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. Do everyone a favor and MOVE!!!! Go live in a trailer in the woods or something with your wild animal kid!!! Do the right thing and move or euthanize him.’ It was signed ‘One pissed of mother!!!‘
I’m one pissed off mother and I’m not alone. The community in Newcastle, Ontario is also outraged. They are banding together to find out who sent the letter and are supporting Max to let him know he’s welcome in the neighborhood.
Police are investigating and the family is considering pressing charges against the uneducated, selfish, rude woman who cowardly left the note unsigned. I hope they find her and punish her to the fullest extent of the law. Maybe she should be sentenced to community service at a school for autistic children, where she can be educated about people who live with autism. She could also receive some grammar lesson while she’s there.
The letter went viral after Lennon and Maisy from the TV show ‘Nashville,’ posted it on Twitter.
This is how Canadians do a drive-by and after watching I wanted to share, being a fellow Canadian. The video was posted just a day ago and already has almost 1 million views on Live Leaks. The video looks like it’s shot from a helmet cam as a man rides his motorcycle.
