The model is angry that a child with Down's syndrome was asked to leave a movie theatre last week
Katie Price is disgusted that a girl with Down’s syndrome was asked to leave a Cineworld in Birmingham last week for laughing too loudly.
The model empathises with 7-year-old Sienna Brown‘s mum Ema Louise because her disabled son Harvey, 10, faces similar problems in public.
‘When I take Harvey to the cinema he often imitates frogs and makes ribbit noises, talks loudly about the story and comes out with all sorts of comments,’ says Katie.
‘I can’t stop him and I won’t, because that’s the way his disabilities make him react.’
Ema Louise, 28, was reportedly told that Sienna had breached the noise policy as they watched cartoon The Croods and a staff member suggested they return when it was less busy.
Katie, 34, reckons she would’ve had a fight if she’d been in the same situation.
‘People don’t realise how courageous disabled kids are or how brave their parents have to be to cope with all the stares and whispers when they act differently,’ Katie writes in The Sun.
‘If someone had tried to kick Harvey out of that cinema I would have kicked off good and proper.’
A Cineworld spokesman says: ‘We were sorry to hear about Ema‘s experience.
‘We are arranging for her to return this week to meet our management team and share views on how to handle these situations more sensitively.’
