A disabled woman politely asked a man to stop distracting her service dog but received a rude response.

In a video she shared on Facebook, the service dog handler can be seen getting harassed by the man and his wife.

“WOW I didn’t expect this to blow up like it has! I appreciate all the support and I hope this spreads a little awareness..."

It started when the man kept getting Sully the service dog’s attention to entertain his little daughter. It made the disabled woman uncomfortable, and she told him so. But it only angered the father.

“This man over here keeps using my service dog to entertain his child,” she says in the video. “I’ve asked him to leave us alone several times. He’s getting to where I had to call security because he will not leave.”

The man’s wife can also be seen filming the incident as if the disabled woman was doing something wrong. She even called the disabled woman “fat” and told her that her reaction was “the reason that you’re actually in [your wheelchair].”

OVERWHELMING PUBLIC SUPPORT

The wheelchair user posted a video of the encounter on the Facebook page, Sully the Service Dog, on December 28, 2018. The video was viewed more than 400,000 times in just two weeks. It was also shared more than 5,000 times.

“WOW I didn’t expect this to blow up like it has! I appreciate all the support and I hope this spreads a little awareness to just leave handlers and their dogs alone or at least respect people’s wishes in general if they find courage to speak up and say something you do is troubling to them,” the wheelchair user wrote.

Harassing and even physically assaulting disabled persons is not an uncommon incident.

In St. Edmunds, Suffolk, five teenagers pelted a disabled woman. Four of them were arrested but later bailed out.

The teens have since gotten police protection as their families have been plagued with threats since a photo of the incident went viral on social media.
