Sean O’Brien just wanted to do what anyone else would when he heard some good music: dance.
However, fellow partygoers had something else in store. They laughed at him and mocked him so much that he stopped dancing in his tracks. The bullies had the audacity to post photos of the man, hanging his head in embarrassment, on social media.
“Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing,” the bully wrote.
They were proud of humiliating someone who was harmlessly enjoying life.
However, a stranger named Cassandra Fairbanks noticed that this wasn’t OK. She used her social media to post a picture of the man, not to make fun of him, but to track him down.
Did anyone know the mysterious “Dancing Man” as people now call him?
Sometimes all it takes is one person making a kind gesture that can undo all of the tormenting in an instant. When a student was made fun of for buzz cut, his teacher shaved her head and made his day.
Fairbanks reached out to Sean with a similar hope to turn his misfortune around.
“I decided to tweet it and our offer in the hopes if he did see it, he would see something positive instead of a bunch of people upset,” Cassandra told BuzzFeed.
After the photo hunt went viral, Sean O’Brien revealed himself.
Then something else happened: It turns out more people were interested in supporting Sean than making fun of him.
See how thousands of people came together to turn one bullied guy who loved to dance into a hero to anyone who has been made fun of in the video below.
