Remember when Harvey Price famously silenced his trolls on Loose Women with three short words?
Well, those words – along with Harvey’s face – have made it onto a flag. And it was flying high for all to see at Glastonbury.
And mum Katie Price couldn’t be more proud.
So proud my son Harvey's comment to trolls and bullies has made it on a flag at Glastonbury pic.twitter.com/G6yFV4AtVY

Sharing a photo of the flag, Katie told her two million followers: “So proud my son Harvey’s comment to trolls and bullies has made it on a flag at Glastonbury.”
If you weren’t around when Harvey made headlines, while featuring on daytime TV chat show, Loose Women, Harvey was asked how he responds to online trolls.
He gave the best answer: “Hello you cunt.”
The clip made its rounds on the Internet before making it onto a line of t-shirts, and now, a massive flag at Glastonbury.
Harvey suffers from a range of disabilities including blindness, autism, ADHD and Prader-Willi syndrome. I’m just throwing this out there but, sadly, Katie may be interpreting this flag a little differently than it was intended. It’s clearly a piss take.
I may be wrong – someone may have plastered Harvey’s comment and his face on a huge flag at a massive festival to celebrate him standing up to trolls… but I’m skeptical.
While some people found it amusing:
Whoever took the Harvey Price flag to Glastonbury should be the new Prime Minister.

Others on Twitter were quick to correct Katie:
@MissKatiePrice well - clearly 'the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree'. Lovely— Phil Evans(official) (@philevanswales) June 26, 2016
@MissKatiePrice I highly doubt any other parent would be proud if that was their son 🙈— Lucy Morris (@LucyMorris91) June 26, 2016
But when Katie re-posted the image with the same caption on Instagram, one commenter responded: “I am so glad you are treating this like this and ignoring the hate, well done Katie!!”
If she really isn’t oblivious to the obvious piss take and is just ignoring critics, fair play to her.
Either way, anyone who makes fun of someone just because they have a disability is a first class asshole.
