Harvey Price is no stranger to the limelight. I guess being born into the Katie Price household meant he had no alternative.
But being such a big name while still only a child certainly has its drawbacks and Katie has often spoke out about the vile online abuse Harvey, who is partially blind and suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, has been handed – and it truly is absolutely sickening.
But when featuring on daytime TV chat show, Loose Women, Harvey was asked how he responds to such parasitical online trolls.
And, boy, did he respond.
In case you didn’t catch that, Harvey responded in perhaps the most perfect way possible to online abuse.
When asked what he says to his bullies he replied with, ‘Hello you cunt’.
In the immediate aftermath of the live TV blunder, Katie tried desperately to tell Harvey off for his language, while Andrea McLean issued a swift apology to viewers.
But it’s fair to say that Twitter users weren’t too offended. In fact they adored his response:
I do love @MissKatiePrice ? and good for Harvey Price for standing up for himself! ?

But this guy put it best:
Harvey Price's response is the best possible. Hopefully the press will focus on the real issues involved, not the use of a word.

Of course, the use of the word is hilarious, and essentially it is the perfect response. Those that hide behind their keyboards and desktops and fire abuse at a disabled young boy they’ve never met are no less than the very definition of a cunt.
But cyber bullying still happens far too often.
