UGH! Mother Of Handicapped Son Gets One Of The Most Offensive Letters EVER — From A Neighbor!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadTeensMental Health

lennon maisy karla begley max handicapped son awful letter

We can NOT believe that intolerance like this exists, and this whole story makes us so sad and sick to our stomachs! We can't believe there are people out there willing to assert themselves as such uncaring and unsympathetic human beings!

Here's what happened! We spotted a tweet from adorable musicians Lennon and Maisy (proof of how adorable they are HERE) it said this:

“A close family friend has an autistic boy and this was an anonymous letter slipped under her door. This is real.”

What they posted was the image (above)! We've also included a larger version of the photo (below) so it's easier for you to read.

The gist of it is that this terrible neighbor thought it was the right thing to do to give an anonymous letter to one of their neighbors — Karla Begley, the mother of 13-year-old Max who was diagnosed with severe autism at the age of 2 — completely condemning her for having a disabled child and how she should be ashamed of what the child puts the 'neighborhood' through!

Max, of course, can't help it! Nobody can: not his mother, not anybody! That does NOT mean that Max is any kind of mistake or soulless monster that terrorizes the neighborhood! He's a real person, and a CHILD.

Luckily, the family is planning on pressing charges! Good for them, because we bet the real problem with the neighborhood isn't Max, but rather the intolerant person who wrote this abysmal letter!

We wish nothing but the best for Max and his fam!

    Re: Chibey

    That is such a redneck trashy mentality. So I can't live in a quiet neighborhood because you're going to make sure you make noise exactly in between those hours to claim your space on this earth. That's all redneck right there. You have no class. Yes, wild animals make noise, but people don't have to because THEY ARE NOT ANIMALS. We all have to be considerate of each others space, because there's not much of it. Come make noise in my neighborhood and I'll shut your trap shut real quick.

    Re: ivyivy – and this is EXACTLY WHY I live in a community that's full of rugrats. In the hell of what surburbia is. No one has respect for anyone's space in the suburbs. people think they can do whetver the fuck they want to do, not realizing people aren't deaf and can hear everyone shit and business. this is why I moved to the country where people are civilized and use their inside voice. You're all whats wrong with the word. I do not condone that letter AT ALL< but give people in the neighborhood a break with all the special excuses BS.

    Re: kabuki girl – None of those noises are acceptable, people like you and people who make noise need to live on top of each other and away from people like me who want peace and quiet. I was born into this world for my own experiences. I don't have to experience other people's motorcycles, or music, or disabled kid making Stimming noises outside. keep it all, it's all yours. I'm not worried. I'm in the country.

    RE MVPnis

    Thanks for doing some additional research on this story. I worked for years with students who have severe and profound disabilities and while most of them had spectacular parents a few had neglectful parents who kept them around just for the social security money. There is nothing wrong with getting help and this mother needs help to properly care for her son, regardless if she has MS or not.

    thank you all so much for drawing attention to this perez.As a mother of a 3yr old autistic son I am faced with rude,hateful comments & people each & every day who do not understand the symptons & behavior of autism.With this making news all over the world we are shining a light on autism something that in my opinion isnt done enough.May god have mercy on this horrible human.

    It amazes me how selfish people are. So basically she expects this mother to euthanize/kill her son because some woman doesn't like the sounds he makes? She expects the mother not to ever take the son outside, to the park or anywhere because she finds his noise offensive? Basically she wants the mother to never leave her house or muzzle a child with mental challenges? WTH? I feel so sad for this woman and her son :(

    Re: pollopicu – God stop talking, you are such an idiot. You have no idea what you are talking about. It's so clear that you are the kind of person that throws words like white trash and redneck out because you are wealthy & you think that means you have class so you can call other people trash and redneck when you don't even know them. Your language on this forum is terrible and you keep commenting on something that you don't really know the details about, reminds me of someone who is..oh whats the word I'm looking for? Oh yea, TRASH

    Re: MVPnis – I just watch the report and what you say is purely personal interpretation of you.
    Yes, the young autistic certe makes strange sounds, possibly worrying for the first time heard but once we know who he is: That is to say, an autistic, it seems that common sense gives us a little understanding, possibly even a little more empathy for the child and his parents.
    I say it like that, in my opinion, there are several types of personalities in this world, there are compassionate people, impatient people and people without empathy for other, the only empathy that these (awfull)people seem to have seems to be headed for their persons or their offspring.

    SIT "INSIDE" WITH THEIR WINDOWS CLOSED IN ORDER TO HAVE QUIET ON THESE BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAYS. PUT HIM IN A HOME OR MOVE TO THE COUNTRY. I AM SURE
    THAT AFTER ALL THIS PUBLICITY THEY HAVE AQUIRED SOMEONE WILL OFFER THEM A NICE CUSHY HOME IN THE COUNTRY……FOR FREE NO DOUBT…..WHILE THE REST OF US WORK FOR OUR COMFORTS.

    Really, i saw the interview and it looked, to me, like an act.
    Even that there is trashy people in this world, if i were a parent that have read a thing like this about my son, i would definetly have being into tears each and everytime i was going to read it again.
    Honestly, looked like they wrote the letter, not someone from the neighborhood.
    whoever wrote this, his own mother or some neighbor, must burn in hell.
    Because that letter was something that came from inside the person, and really, this "person" is the one who is handicapped, not the child.
    Handicapped of feelings, of human essence.



  23. 123

    THIS TERRIBLE NEWS. HOPE BUDDHA SEND MUCH KARMA HER WAY, GIVE HER RETARDED GRANDSON MAYBE. MAYBE SHE FALL DOWN FLIGHT OF STAIR, BECOME HANDICAP NEED TO SIT ON PORCH ALL DAY TOO. HATE NO GOOD I PRAY TO BUDDHA FOR HER.

    i am sick to my stomach



  26. 126

    While I find the letter to be absolutely disgusting and feel the person who wrote it is a deplorable human being, it takes a lot to push someone to the point of writing something like this and actually slipping it under someone's door. I'm willing to bet that there is more to this than we know. Like someone else said, it almost implies that the autistic child is being left outside alone and not being properly cared for or looked after. My nephew is autistic and sometimes gets loud, yells, or makes a lot of noise. If he is outside when this happens, he is promptly brought indoors, so his neighbors are not disturbed.

  28. 128

    Re: maggie – I see! I think the mean mother's letter is just poorly written. I cannot tell if she's saying that (1) when the child is in tantrum, she put him on porch/yard so he's not loud in her home, or (2) the child has tantrums when he's just on a walk with his mom.

    Thanks for giving more information. That poor mother has her own physical disability and her son is mentally handicapped. The other mothers should be going over there to help her!!!

    129

    Re: pollopicu – You are soooo right! I have a special needs teen. and if he is excessively being loud and disturbing, I "parent" him and make him realize that we can't always do everything and anything we want to do. If it continues, then its time to come in for a bit. But most of the time, after a quick talk (if you have an autistic kid, you should know it is not the same talk you can give a non autistic teen) Kids with autism still have to have rules and regulations. Parents need to be resposible for their kids, handicapped or not. Like I said, I am writing this with much experience.

    Re: trinigirl123 – Worded perfectly! The complaintant went waaay too far with the letter. Could have just "talked" to the neighbour about it. But I totally understand the complaint. My boy does the same thing, and I have never had a complaint, but I also monitor him. if the Mom has MS than she needs to come up with a solution. My autistic teen is not my neighbours responsibility, they deserve a life too!

    Re: ivyivy – This poster NEVR has anything good to say. EVERYONE is "white trash" or something along that line when they do not agree with her/him.The best ting people can do is to ignore this person. They are a miserable person who only wants to make others as miserable as they are. I have noticed her/his posts for a LONG time and how insulting and negative thay always are. Maybe it is even because that person likes making other mad.

    "It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!"
    Holy shit. Firstly, maybe you should have raised your children to be more tolerant of others- disability or not. Secondly, I'm hoping to any possible higher power that your "normal kids" don't turn out like you.
    I mean really, you essentially called her child worse than a dog. How ignorant are you? Not to mention this letter sounds like it was written by a 16 year old. If you're having problems with noise in your neighbourhood, don't be a bitch about it. Form a properly, well written letter.
    Because honestly? If I was that kids mother, I'd hope the kid makes MORE noise after receiving a letter like that. Whereas if it was kind, I'd be incredibly more understanding. Seriously disgusting. This woman should be ashamed.

    Re: pollopicu – that may be true, any noise can annoy me, but having a severely autistic brother in law I understand that just telling him off when he makes noise won't work. They don't understand. Telling my brother in law off just makes him do what he was doing more as he doesn't understand, no matter how many times you show him it's wrong.

    i have a special needs brother and this DISGUSTS me… people like that need to be put in mental institutions themselves.. my brother and every other person with special needs didn't ASK to have handicaps!!! they would give anything to not be handicapped but they do the best they can with what god gave them!! if i ever got this letter i would go ballistic and do whatever i could to find out who wrote it so she could have a huge piece of my mind… it's one thing to ask if maybe you could watch your son more closely in order to have a little peace and quiet but the way she worded this letter is truly atrocious.. for all of you people saying you see where she's coming from, you're just as disgusting because i do not have a problem with people being uncomfortable around my brother but i do have a problem with people treating him like he's an animal!

How could someone be so mean i just dont get it, if she had a mentaly diabled child she wouldnt want anyone talking shit about him/her. People can just be such bitches sometimes gosh>



  47. 147

    While I fully agree that this letter is atrocious and the "mom" who wrote it is a horrible f*ck, I am curious as to how the recipient can even press charges? I mean, I guess harassment? Is that right? Unfortunately, it's not illegal to tell someone to f*ck themselves….which is ultimately, what this ridic letter is saying. But, what is the recourse? Perez et al, please fill in! I would like to know what the charges are! (Though, public shaming via the interwebs is pretty great). To the lady that received this? Keep your head up. NICE people aren't usually so douchey. You, your family and your special need child aren't to blame-your neighbor is a giant d*ck.

    148

    Re: knowitallq – No. Wrong. You have not even followed the story. The neighbor who wrote this letter thought it was his mother. The kid was living with the grandmother. The mother with MS doesn't even live with the child, it's not the mother's house. So your theory of the mother with MS looking for sympathy is bunch of baloney. Nice try!

    Re: pollopicu – you seem to be trashy to me. i was taught that only ignorant trashy people have the need to use vulgar language and you my dear are a prime example. If the mother is throwing her child outside so she does not have to listen to her own child… shame on her. the neighbor should have asked respectfully to please be more mindful but by no means does she have the right to attack an innocent child. && i honestly feel sorry for you if you in any way agree with that horrible woman. try to imagine a say in the life of a parent with a diabled child. i have a son who is by all medical means normal but he can be wild and hard to control and i find myself overwhelmed so i feel for every parent with the extra responsibility a handicap brings. i hope you have a blessed day.

    Re: Rory – NO, I AM AFRAID YOU ARE WRONG. I READ THE STORY. THE GRANDMOTHER IS TIRED OF LOOKING AFTER THIS CHILD. THE MOTHER IS UNABLE (SO SHE SAYS) TO LOOK AFTER HIM …THEREFORE SHE IS LOOKING FOR AN EASY WAY OUT
    OF THE SITUATION. BRINGING ATTENTION TO THEM AND HOPING FOR SOMEONE TO GIVE HER A SOLUTION. LIKE I SAID THERE ARE FACILITIES OUT THERE THAT WILL LOOK AFTER THESE CHILDREN (VERY WELL) AND KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM WITHOUT CURSING OTHER PEOPLES SPACE WITH OFFENSIVE BEHAVIOR. I'M DONE…..LIKE I SAID SEARCH FOR THE PURPLE PAPER OR WHO HAS PURCHASED IT RECENTLY….NOT A COMMON COLOUR TO USE. TO THE NEIGBOUR WHO WROTE THE LETTER…GOOD FOR YOU FOR HAVING THE GUTS TO COME FORWARD.

If u want peace & quiet all the time go sit ur ass in a library or go by your own large property to sit in silence and not be bothered. U live in a neighborhood with people, families, animals noise! Get over ur self. What makes u think u own the rights in the neighborhood anyways. U obviously think way too highly of ur self. Come back to reality ur nobody different just like the rest of us.

    We had a similar situation on our block. At first we had to ask the neighbors if we should call the police because it was a adult woman screaming. The neighbors explained the situation. She was an adult child of the elderly couple on the block. She had been in an accident as a child and was left with brain damage. It took maybe two weeks to just get used to it and I will tell you that every time it happened was a blessing. It reminded us; that all people have rights, there are parents who will do whatever they need for their babies, this can happen to ANYONE include the sorry person who wrote this letter. We also had been regularly seeing this woman when she and her elderly parents walked around the block every night. She always stopped to smell our flowers. She is a person who enjoys her life. Thank Goodness for our differences and accepting that we all have rights.

    just because the crazy lady who wrote the letter said the rest of the neighborhood felt the same as she does, doesn't mean that it is true. Chances are more people probably feel something called empathy for the woman and her son. What do you suggest? Put all people with physical and mental special needs on an island? How uncaring to take such a stance over noise level in a family neighborhood. Wouldn't you want some empathy from your neighbors if you were dealing with these types of struggles?

    The writer of that so called letter calls herself a "mother" lmao what a load of SHIT!
    She has no right to even call herself a female , God only knows what kind of upbringing she has had to have such a f@#%ed up mentality. How can ANY! be such a B%#@$ to someone who has an autistic child. I have no doubt in my mind that if you gave birth to a challenged child you would probably kill the poor child you devil woman.
    LOL "one pissed of mother" huh …. you are just one pissing hoe you sorry excuse of a woman Argh. You disgust me .
