8-year-old boy targeted by homophobes after he dressed as Hillary Clinton for Halloween

Joe Williams October 31, 2016

The boy’s mothers were accused of child abuse for letting their son dress as the presidential hopeful.

An 8-year-old boy showed his support for Hillary Clinton in the best possible way this Halloween – by dressing up as her!

Donning a bright yellow coat, briefcase and clip-on earrings, the boy took to the streets of New York to campaign for his presidential favourite – and trick or treat, obviously.

“Our eight-year-old son is with you Hillary Clinton today and everyday,” his mothers posted on Twitter.

However, not everybody appreciated the young Democrat’s obvious style.

Trust the homophobic Twitter troll brigade to pick on an 8-year-old child. On Halloween.

See some of the highlights – including “total fag” and child abuse accusations – below:

Luckily, there were some people who are still in possession of their soul primed and ready to defend the youngster:
