Everyone in the movie theater who victimized this mother-son duo should be banned from the cinema!
A mother and her son from Duxbury, Massachusetts had to endure a horrifying experience while they were waiting for a film to start at a movie theater. Emily Colson and her son Max were at the movies on Christmas Day, and Emily was both nervous and excited for the experience.
Nervous because her son Max is autistic, and she wanted to make sure he felt comfortable during the movie. Excited because she knew it was a big step for them to see a movie together in a packed theater.
However as soon as the movie started, those feelings turned into rage and despair, and it was ALL the fault of some straight up bullies!
Emily revealed the entire experience on her blog, and she pointed out how Max cried out when the movie started that he wanted to go home. She knew that if she could just reassure him, he may very well calm down.
But an older couple next to them immediately jumped down Emily and Max's throat! The woman of the couple said:
"Are you going to make him be quiet?"
When Emily revealed that her son was autistic, the woman replied:
"I know he is, but why should the rest of us have to suffer?"
Then her husband chimed in:
"If you don't make him be quiet I'm calling the manager."
Hold on, let us do some slow breathing exercises for a minute because those kind of remarks get our blood boiling!!!
Emily, however, chose what was probably the most rational option: they left the theater. But before they could exit, members of the mob like audience began to shout out "don't come back" and "he's retarded!"
Having gone WAY too far now, this made Emily address the crowd.
"There is a lesson here. A lesson that is so much more important than anything you will learn from this movie."
Since posting that blog of that horrible day, Emily has talked about the experience in many interviews.
Hopefully her horror story will lead to it never happening again! Not only was that audience uncool - they were downright inhuman.
Check out Emily's entire blog post HERE. It's definitely worth the read!
