Well done Adam Pearson, , and showed theres a real human being behind the face, an articulate intelligent man. He was lovely.

Im disabled, yet people either talk to anyone with me as if Im not there or if they talk to me they shout slowly as if Im stupid and deaf.

current government and their shit all compassion and non-help for disabled are not helping matters at all.

the police were disgusting by not investigating the trolling. as Adam said, racists, religeion, ageism yes, but disbled? ha ha, its a joke, we're a joke, we are not worthy of being on this earth, we have no purpose or use, we are a drain on society and the tax payers (not the benefit cheats or mps and their expenses though).

The mention of Fiona Pilkington is pretty much what happens to me and my DC (also disabled), and like her, the police/social services everyone else have done fuck all about it.

And what wasnt mentioned was hidden disabilities, plus look at the people convicted of disability crime, they literally get off scott free. its disgraceful.

Also, sadly, I bet many so-called ''normal'' people didn't bother watching it, its nothing to do with them.

Yes, I watched it. I have seen Adam before, he is a fantastic person.
I noticed the lack of attention to hidden disabilities too, but I suppose the programme couldn't cover every aspect soconcentrated on what he had to contend with.
I was very surprised no one challenged the comment on his YouTube page. I certainly would have.

That comment was despicable. I was surprised too.

And I get angry like his mum too when people stare at us too long. well, stare and then make a disgusting comment!

It was on the other night i watched it was interesting the comment was a frigging disgrace. Im disabled and i used to go out when i was younger with my friend who used a wheelchair in pubs it was a nightmare like the guy adam was interviewing idiots would come over and hassle us mainly wheeling my friend away they were just having a laugh obviously hmm
