Celebrities across the internet are planning to turn an instance of online bullying into a giant dance party featuring Moby and Pharrell to combat body shaming.
It all started out when a user on 4chan uploaded a picture of a man dancing at a nightclub. The 4chan user said “Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing.”
In the 3 days since the photo was posted however, the internet's goal was to track him down, fly him to LA and throw him a party with 1,727 women.
Shortly after Twitter user @CassandraRules posted a tweet about ladies wanting to do something special for the man, Dancing Man was found. Shortly after Dancing Man was found, Sean from London tweeted “Big thanks to all who have tweeted such kind words. Not stopped smiling and laughing.”
The good acts of the internet didn't stop there though as they launched a GoFundMe page to help raise money to bring Sean to the party. Their efforts helped raise more than $37,000 which is $17,000 higher than the original $20k goal.
A sleuth of musicians have offered to play the party for free, including Pharrell, Ellie Goulding, Andrew WK and Moby.
