How The Internet Rallied Behind Dancing Man

The Internet may be perceived as a platform where everyone’s life is open to ridicule and shame by haters and trolls. Equally true, however, is the fact that the Internet also makes heroes and celebrities out of the ordinary.
 
One such ordinary man, Sean O’Brien, a Merseysider who now lives in London, experienced the lows of first being ridiculed for trying to dance, despite his weight, and then the absolute highs of loads of users and even celebrities, joining the bandwagon to make him feel amazing! He is now known as The Dancing Man!
 
Cassandra Banks, a writer based in California, was among the first to reach out to Sean.

 

Then, Sean was eventually found!

 

 

 

It must have been difficult to say no to 1,727 “occasionally overly enthusiastic group of young women in California” who were willing to throw a party just for him!
 
Apart from the outpouring of support Sean has received from those all over the world, even his close friends and family have now begun to share their stories about how special a person Sean is. It’s all overwhelming even for us so we can only imagine how wonderful Sean must be feeling!
 
As for the dancing side of things, Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Cheryl Burke has offered to choreograph a special piece that will make Sean look amazing.

 

But the fun doesn’t end there either!
 
A special evening has been planned for Sean and the attendees and performers will include the who’s who of the entertainment industry including Pharrell Williams, Moby, Ellie Goulding, and the list is only growing.

 

 

Apart from the idea itself, over $30,000 has been collected through the campaign – money that will go towards an anti-bullying cause.
 
The Los Angeles Coliseum also opted to host the party.

 

Now this is a feel good story if we ever heard one!
