All is certainly not right with the world but hey, on the brighter side, all is certainly not wrong either! A little boy named Charlie discovered this the best way possible as he found himself at the center of a campaign of social networking site Twitter. As #CheerUpCharlie trended among Twitterati, the adorable kid did indeed cheer up, but not after he had sought to be undone by a mass of inadequately insensitive bullies.

Twitter was flooded with support for Charlie after his teacher and theater actor Jacqueline Hughes shared the traumatic experience endured by the child. Apparently, Charlie is a huge lover of musical theaters and his very passion for music and the arts had led him to be bullied. As six guys beat up and called out the kid as “gay, fat and stupid”, Charlie was left “curled up and crying”. Hughes took to Twitter urging her fellow industry friends to take out some time and respond to her call of cheering up a distraught Charlie.

Hughes however did not expect the massive outpouring of love that came in from London’s West End stage actors via Twitter and other social media sites Facebook and Instagram. Musicals like Aladdin, Hamilton, Wicked, Mama Mia, Book of Mormon, Come from Away, The Lion King, Kinky Boots and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie all had cast members sending videos to Charlie urging him to cheer up.

Needless to say, Hughes and her student was overwhelmed with joy and the boy did indeed cheer up. And how! Hughes shared another post on Twitter where both teacher and pupil is seen to be in full spirits, dancing, singing and smiling their way to deserved glory!
