Katie Price ‘over the moon’ as police move to prosecute troll who shared cruel racist video of disabled son Harvey


KATIE Price is ‘over the moon’ after police decided to move forward and prosecute an alleged troll who shared a racist video mocking her disabled son Harvey. 

The reality star has told friends she’s “glad action is being taken” over the video, which was shared on Instagram and TikTok and featured a man in blackface pretending to be Harvey, 18. 

“Katie is pleased the case is moving forward and action is being taken - it’ll show people that there are real consequences to internet trolling,” says a friend of the star. 

Another insider confirms that the case is moving forward and Katie has been contacted about appearing in court to give evidence. 

Katie’s rep confirmed the story when contacted by The Sun Online. 

A man - who cannot be named for legal reasons - was arrested on 5 November last year, five days after the offensive video appeared online. 

Sussex police confirmed a man had been detained after a dawn raid in Hastings, ‘on suspicion of sending by public communication network an offensive/ indecent/ obscene/ menacing message’. 

Police are still hunting the couple featured in the video, who mock Katie and her son. 

The woman playing 42-year-old Katie says: "If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?"

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

Speaking at the launch of her new bath bomb range last month, Katie said: "Someone has been arrested. It is going to the Crown Court. Police are still looking for two other people."

The 52 year old man who was arrested was quizzed - and insiders said Katie is determined to take the investigation all the way as part of her Harvey’s Law campaign to make online trolling a criminal offence. 

Speaking about the video - which appears to mock Harvey's disabilities - at the time, Katie wrote: "Words cannot describe how upset I am, this is so cruel."

Harvey, 18, is on the autistic spectrum, shows characteristics of Prader-Willi Syndrome and struggles with his weight. He also has a disorder which makes him partially blind.

Katie Price's son Harvey says he's 'happy' to move to full-time residential college
