This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
No offense to the Oscars, but this sounds like a WAY better deal to us!
Apparently the actor who portrays Spiderman took Miles Scott and his family to Disneyland, and we're assuming they had a fabulous time together!
"Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production. Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) and his family."
We're not sure what happened at the Oscars the previous day, but many times - especially when one's about to do live television - things have to be omitted even if the idea sounds amazing! What's that saying? Kill your darlings.
Fortunately though Andrew Garfield was able to make it up to the five-year-old in the best of ways!
Spiderman and Batkid together with Mickey Mouse?
Sounds like the best of days to us!!!
