It is a form of representation. Not looking from the side of marginalization, but as a reference… Shouldn’t all types of bodies, races and characteristics be considered that way from the moment someone feels represented by something?“, defended a follower. The artist replied: “I don’t know, I hadn’t even replied by the phrase, but by the cute children hugging the poster“.

The children’s family account also expressed itself, claiming that they are being attacked. “I never thought I would receive so many aggressive messages simply because two children feel happy to see a person with the same characteristics as yours on a poster.“, wrote the profile administrator.
