Stigma can stop with you. Jake Lloyd suffers from Schizophrenia and complications of the illness have been spotlighted everywhere. The reactions are predictably cruel — the spirit of jokes horrendous and mean. It’s time to stop the mockery of this human’s crisis and suffering.
It’s heartbreaking how much more celebrities have to suffer when they have a mental disability and it’s symptoms and behaviors are judged in the world spotlight, made into jokes and they become dehumanized. The same people who were loved and excelled when they were well. What is wrong with society? Time to evolve.
This phenomenon happening with Jake Lloyd is stigma and it’s disgusting. Please show your compassion on social media and put a stop to this type of shaming. Be human online too.
Also, let others know with love and kindness they can do better and show #Compassion4JakeLloyd. He is worthy of it, appropriate treatment and privacy to heal.
When he gets home, someone please take him a casserole.
