A Facebook user who goes by the name of Geris Hilton posted a photo with a Black child, allegedly the son of his co-worker, then he and his friends decided to make racist “jokes” at the child’s expense.
Since the photo has gone viral, one of the commenters, Emily Irene Red, has allegedly been fired.
The child has been identified by his mother Sydney as Cayden Jace. She took to her Facebook page to express her gratitude for all of the support she has received.

Baron O’Malley, another one of the racists who commented, left a public post on his page for “Dark Twitter”:
These malicious allegations that are being brought against me are completely and incontrovertibly untrue. Despite what you may have been led to believe, I can honestly assure all of you that I dindu nuffin.
The hashtag #HisNameIsCayden is starting to gain traction on Twitter as more people become aware of this bigotry.
Racists are being put on notice that long gone are the days that they than spew their ugliness and get away with it.
