Dan, 26, set on fire because he is in a relationship with Shauna, a 23-year-old woman… stuck in the body of an 8-year-old child (photos and videos)
Shauna Rae Lesick, a 23-year-old young woman, suffered from brain cancer as a child and her treatment was not without consequences: if she beat the disease, she is now stuck in the body of an 8 year old child. It thus measures about one meter and weighs a little more than twenty kilos.
Today, she is the star of her own reality show, I Am Shauna Rae. After the first season aired, 26-year-old Dan Swygart got in touch with her, which eventually led to several dates and an appearance on the show.
The reactions were quick to rain, reports TVA Nouvelles. Dan received a number of “absolutely disgusting” and “dehumanizing” comments, which he wanted to respond to on Instagram.
“It’s very important to remember that Shauna is an incredible 23-year-old woman with a disability,” he says in his video. “In developing a connection with her, it’s important to acknowledge her disability and move past it and build it on who she is as an individual,” he concluded.
