People can be jerks sometimes, but thankfully there are always plenty of good people out there who want to help lift your spirits. In March, London resident Sean O’Brien was publicly shamed for dancing in public because he is overweight. Instead of just brushing it off as another troll on the internet, Cassandra Fairbanks and friend decided to reach out.
Anyone know this man or who posted this? There’s a huge group of ladies in LA who would like to do something special pic.twitter.com/DGbu3AXOrB

They managed to find Sean with the hashtag #FindDancingMan within a day.

Well, this weekend was Sean’s dance party, and it was a star-studded event!
Djing for #DancingMan tonight at Avalon. Picking out my records now. See you later!

Not only did the party raise a ton of money for anti-bullying efforts…
but Sean had some inspirational words for everyone.
