A host of celebrities, including British grime and hip hop artist Stormzy, have sent birthday greetings to a young boy who is being bullied.
Chris Hope-Smith, from Leeds, posted on Twitter asking if people could send positive messages to his son, Ollie.
He wrote: “The bully keeps saying to him that everything O has, he has bigger/better/more often.
“I would love someone to tell him he does mean something and bullying is not ok, ever.”
Ollie will celebrate his ninth birthday on the 5 July.
Responding to the appeal, Stormzy wrote: “Happy birthday Ollie! You’re a lil legend. ????F389Don’t watch the bullies they always end up being the biggest wastemen later in life.”
