On social media, an L.A. mother shattered hearts by sharing the heartbreaking news that her kid was alone at his own birthday celebration when “literally zero people showed up.”
User @dawners86 said in a social media video that all 22 children invited to JJ’s sixth birthday celebration failed to show up.
She also revealed the sad circumstances of her kid being left alone in the park with the birthday decorations and cupcakes put up.
The mother stated that COVID-19 limitations in her region had been removed and that the party was held outside to guarantee safety, but no one from JJ’s class came up.
In the voiceover explaining the scenario, the devastated mother remarked, “So we’re sitting at the park for JJ’s birthday party, we got everything ready, his party started half an hour ago.” “On his birthday, he had literally no one show up. “Oh, my poor little guy.”
JJ’s mother captioned the video, “Sorry the video is choppy…
I’m very sorry for this poor man. He is deserving of better. He’s incredible.”
Since June 20, the video has received over 543,000 likes and 20,000 comments, with many people sending birthday greetings, sharing similar experiences that they or their children have had, and offering to send JJ presents.
The mom, on the other hand, has declined the presents, stating that the offers are “greatly appreciated,” but that they should be donated to children’s hospitals instead. She also said that JJ preferred to spend time with his pals rather than receive presents, but that the “outreach” had been “phenomenal.”
Later, she went live on social media to throw a virtual birthday celebration from their home in Los Angeles for JJ, which drew almost 30,000 spectators at one point.
Although JJ and his mother seemed to be in a better mood after all of the help, this isn’t always the case.
When none of his 32 guests showed up for his sixth birthday party in 2018, an Arizona mother posted a picture of her kid sitting alone next to a half-eaten pizza. Sil Mazzini subsequently stated that she regretted posting the picture of her kid after it went viral.
“To be honest, I wish I could go back in time and undo that message,” Mazzini remarked. “We don’t want to be the center of attention.” We didn’t do it for publicity, presents, or anything else. I did it in the heat of the moment, but it wasn’t wise. I was irritated. That is all there is to it.”
