A few months ago, we introduced you to Sean O’Brien aka #DancingMan.
The U.K. native initially became famous for a post on 4Chan (a photo-sharing site) that cruelly body-shamed him, and then even more famous for the outpouring of support.
A California woman named Cassandra Fairbanks started a campaign to find Sean using the hashtag #FindDancingMan, and his offline identity was quickly discovered.
Sean is having the last
laugh dance, because he’s the guest of honor at a massive dance party being held in Los Angeles this weekend and deejayed by Moby! Other celebrities going to show Sean support include Pharrell, Andrew W.K., and Monica Lewinsky.
So who does Sean feel sorry for most? Not himself!
“I have no shame in myself; I’m quite self-confident. I just feel sorry for the people who take the Mickey out of [mock] other people because they have their own insecurities!”
“There’s far too many good people out there, they outweigh the bad. Just always look on the positive side.”
We just love his positivity!
Ch-ch-check out the video below to learn how he found out he was a viral sensation and what he’s looking forward to most at his dance-a-thon!
