Katie Price receives apology from online troll

Katie Price has shamed an Internet troll into apologising for mocking her disabled son Harvey.

Arron Bevin, a salesman from Manchester, was named by Katie on social media for his vile posts about the 13-year-old boy - who suffers from septo-optic dysplasia, autism and Prader-Willi syndrome.

Mr. Bevin has now removed the memes and photos from his Facebook account which ridiculed Harvey's illnesses and made racist jokes and has apologised to the 'Loose Women' star, insisting he did not create the images and regrets his actions.

Katie went on a mission on Wednesday (09.03.16) to reveal the identities of individuals posting offensive memes of Harvey - whose dad is retired Manchester United football player Dwight Yorke - on Facebook.

Mr. Bevin's Facebook apology to Katie and her family read: "For the record. I never made any of these Harvey Price pictures I just posted it. I would like to apologise to Katie Price and family and this will never happen again. I am a lovely person inside and I think Harvey is a lovely person. I really do. It was very immature of myself. This will not happen again and I am deeply sorry. I agree what I posted/shared was disgusting - it will NEVER happen again. The people that know the real me, know that I am a genuine loving person. Again I am sorry. (sic)"

The mum-of-five went on a social media rampage, uploading a series of 'sickening' images on Instagram, and urging followers to help find those responsible.

A screenshot of the Facebook profile was shared by the star as she tried to "make a point".

Over a couple of hours, Katie - who is married to Kieran Hayler - shamed several other trolls, with fans joining her campaign and expressing their disgust over the photos mocking young Harvey.
