Noah Gilbert was born with a unique decide of genes that he shares with merely 2 percent of the world’s population: ruby-red hair.
But rather than being celebrated for his unique features, Noah was taunted and bullied for being a “ginger, ” at just three years old.
The young boy was disturbed where reference is requested his mama why he had “horrible” hair, after a brutal teenager on the bus constructed disgusting commentaries to Noah, including: “I would dislike my child to be ginger, I would kill it” and “All children with ginger hair should go straight to social services.”
His mother, Lauren, was with him the whole period and is seeking to shield Noah from the nasty remarks. But when they got home, he wept to his mommy, asking why he couldn’t have blonde hair like his older brother.
Lauren took to Facebook to detail the heartbreaking suffer and plead for others to stand up against bullying. The young mom of four took subjects into her own hands and used social media to show her son that he is perfectly desired just the course he is 😛 TAGEND
Today my nerve transgressed in two. Whilst tripping on a public bus number 12 I witnessed such brutal behaviour towards my 3 year age-old son from a very narrow minded son who couldn’t be much older than 13.
Unfortunately this hasn’t been the first time and I know it won’t be the last. He’s been targeted by people of all ages.
And what for? Because he has ginger hair. My beautiful son was told social service should have taken him away because his whisker colour is disgusting. The son then turned to his pal and said if he ever had a ginger child he would kill it. Now my little boy is simply 3 and was left very confused .. I seem devastated as I[ too] have ginger fuzz and[ know] all too well what it’s like to grow up being singled out[ as] the target of such bullies.
He hasn’t stopped asking me why people don’t like his whisker. He asked me if I could change it for him so people will like it. He asked me if he could be like his brother who doesn’t have ginger whisker. I can feel my heart smash each time he asks me. My little boy gazes so sad and I want to make it better.
The reason I am trying to go public with this is because I know these brutal bullies are in the minority. I want to show my little boy that there is more good in this world-wide than bad. There are kind and caring non judgemental people who won’t ever single him out.
I ask you all to please share this and testify my boy how beautiful he is. I want to show him the good in this world with the power of Facebook. It isn’t okay to bully somebody for their fuzz colour , not now. Not ever. Thankyou xxx
Her post erupted a cyclone of people commenting with their own ginger photographs and sharing its own experience with bully, in hopes of encouraging young Noah.
Some even pointed to celebrity idols like Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry, who rock their ginger hair like red-carpet royalty.
In only a short chip of day, Lauren’s inbox was blowing up with messages of support, and people from all over the world were joining together to establish Noah feel good about his hair.
“This afternoon he said he thinks he has lovely whisker now, which is a succor, but he shouldn’t have had that fret in the first place, ” she wrote.
Lauren hopes the teen apologizes to Noah and realizes what his words did to the young boy–but either way, she is beyond grateful for the overwhelming quantity of the assistance provided he has received from people across the globe.
It turns out, she was right. That bully WAS outnumbered, by thousands of kind strangers who took the time to show her precious son how special he truly is. [?]
