March 7, 2015
People across the world are taking a stand against public shaming after a photo of a man getting ridiculed for having a good time went viral.
This photo was posted to the website 4Chan, with a horrible caption:
The caption reads: "Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing."
Another 4Chan user re-posted the photo to the website Imgur, with a new caption: "I find this behavior f***ing despicable. If you're out there big man, f**k those kids. Keep dancing."
People began to rally behind this "dancing man." Once the story reached twitter, amazing things began to happen.

Thousands of female Twitter users made plans to throw him an epic dance party in Los Angeles while also sending a strong message against body shaming.
Cassandra Fairbanks said in a statement: "A group of 2000 strong, empowered and compassionate women from Los Angeles are on the lookout for this man. They want to show him that not everyone treats others poorly and they want to find him and DANCE. We have access to the hottest venues in Hollywood and would like to fly him here expenses paid to dance the night away. I wanted to do something nice for him. I sent out a tweet and spread like wildfire. Now we are keeping in touch as me and my lady cult, GNI (not actually a cult) plan an incredible party."
Thanks to social media, he was found in under 48 hours. The Londoner, whose first name is Sean, accepted Cassandra's offer.
In case you were wondering, Cassandra wasn't bluffing about having access to the hottest venues in Hollywood. Pharrell Williams was the first celebrity to tweet his support.
Hours later, Moby offered to DJ the party for free.
Sean couldn't believe what was happening.
Just woke up to be greeted with so many more kind words. Big thanks again and am sure the charity will appreciate it as well. Thanks again
