Jordan lashes out after comments

Katie Price has spoken of her anger after an MP’s son called her disabled son Harvey a ‘vegetable’ on Twitter.

Ian Lavery Jnr, 24 – the son of Labour MP for Wansbeck Ian Lavery – sent the insulting Tweet along with a crude remark about Katie.

And the mum-of-three was quick to slam the derogatory comments about 10-year-old Harvey, who suffers from septo optic dysplasia and Prader-Willi syndrome.

This makes me sick to my stomach,’ says Katie, 34.

Not just that someone could be so vile as to think such a thing, but also could think it clever to repeat to the world on Twitter?

This is just as much a hate crime as racism and should be treated as such.’

Ian Lavery, 50, is a patron for brain injury charity Headway and whilst he has condemned his son’s comments he won’t take responsibility.

I’m absolutely appalled by it but I cannot police my kids and I have no intention to,’ the MP tells The Sun.

They have to learn how to behave in the big wide world like I did.’

Despite initially defending his comments Ian Lavery Jnr has since apologised and claimed to feel ‘stupid’.

Pregnant Katie, who is expecting her fourth child with new hubby Kieran Hayler, has continued to condemn the remarks on her Twitter page.

RT time to stop bullying on #disability #racism #homaphobia #ageism it’s all wrong, we are all as one the same x,’ the model Tweeted earlier today.
