Footage of a gang of white teens assaulting an autistic black child has sparked sorrow and outrage online after going viral.
Full story below…
The video, which we have decided not to share, sees a group of teenagers force a black child to kiss their feet as they attacked him with racist insults.
Footage of the horrific incident surfaced online and made its way to Twitter where a number of users were able to identify two of the child’s attackers.
This is Kieran, a lovely young boy with autism. The other 2 in the video, I have no words to describe. The video speaks for itself. Kieran, I got you my guy, always. I appreciate the love and support you send me constantly. Keep that head of yours high. Love, your friend, MR ♥️ https://t.co/hJnCUlntbL
