Katie Price heads to court to see 'troll in the dock over cruel racist video of disabled son Harvey'

KATIE Price is on her way to court today to face an alleged troll accused of posting a racist video mocking her disabled son Harvey.

The reality star, 43, is due to give evidence after the 52-year-old man, who legally can't be named, was charged over the clip.


Katie shared a video on her Instagram as she made her way to Hastings Magistrates Court this morning.

The defendant was arrested ten hours after the video was posted on suspicion of sending by public communication network an offensive/indecent/obscene/menacing message.

He is due to appear in court this morning.

The clip appeared online in November and showed a woman playing Katie asking: "If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?"

Her partner, wearing blackface, responds: "Hello you c***s."

Katie then appealed on social media, who is spearheading the Track A Troll campaign to remove anonymity online, to track down those responsible.

In a previous post on the social media site, she wrote: "I've been sent this disgusting, racist mockery-taking video about me and Harvey mocking his disabilities, clearly planned hence the face-painting (sic).

"Does anybody know these disgusting humans as I will be reporting to the police #Harvey'sLaw.

"Words cannot describe how upset I am, this is so cruel. These people need reporting."

Katie appeared before MPs last summer to discuss internet trolling aimed at Harvey, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome.

She is campaigning for a new law, which she has dubbed “Harvey’s Law”, to make online abuse a specific offence and to create a register of offenders.
