Peanut bullying

Another cyberbullying Tweet I ran across and wish to share with you:

"I'm going as a peanut allergy for Halloween."

I find it disrespectful. We need to do more to spread awareness and prevent bullying of our peanut allergic kids by ignorant people.

I responded to the user that peanut allergy is a disability like any other medical condition, and she wouldn't dress up as a child wih Down Syndrome as an example? She replied that she was joking and I am psychotic. Goes to show you what kind of immature person she is. Instead of apologizing for her mistake and offense/insult she reacts by attacking me. I blocked her.
