She and her followers are NOT happy!

In a world where social justice and empathy have become huge topics of discussion and debate, more and more people are being celebrated for the way they were born and their natural traits, even if they don’t conform to modern standards of beauty. Although more and more of these traits have become celebrated and widely accepted, there are still incidents of people being outwardly disdainful of natural imperfections or defects that people may be born with.

This mother experienced this disdain first hand when the popular social media app Instagram took down a picture of her son with Goldenhar syndrome after another user reported it.
