Katie Price has called out trolls who mocked her son Harvey by posting a video of themselves in blackface imitating him.
The former glamour model, 42, who has been campaigning for Harvey’s Law in Parliament to stop online bullying, revealed the type of abuse her son gets on social media.
Katie shared the video, which saw a woman pretending to be Katie say: ‘If somebody says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?’
A man in blackface then responds: ‘Hello you c**t’, as the woman says to him ‘Harvey!’, imitating a TV appearance where Harvey accidentally swore.
Katie wrote: ‘I’ve been sent this disgusting racist mockery p**s taking video about me and Harvey mocking his disabilities, clearly planned hence the face painting!
‘Does anybody know these disgusting humans as I will be reporting this to the police #HarveysLaw.
‘Words can not describe how upset I am, this is so cruel. These people need reporting.’
Katie also shared a tweet from Anna Kennedy, a campaigner for autistic children, asking Twitter to take the video down.
She added: ‘Thanks @annakennedyobe as you me and Harvey personally you know how upset I will be.
‘Thank you for everything you do and your support with people like Harvey’.
Katie has been lobbying MPs for several years for Harvey’s Law to make online abuse a specific offense.
She is calling for trolls to be identified and ‘named and shamed’ by being put on a register, which could be accessed later in people’s lives, for instance when they apply for a job.
Katie told the Commons Petitions Committee in the summer about the memes that have been made of her son, who has Prader-Willi syndrome and is autistic and partially blind.
She explained: ‘Because Harvey does say these funny, witty, things, they turn it into videos and they’re laughing at him, not with him and this is the difference.’
