About a million celebs wished a bullied boy happy birthday and it was the best Twitter thread ever

The greatest Twitter thread of all time? Quite possibly.

Ollie Hope-Smith is turning 9 next week and his dad took to Twitter with a "strange request" that brought out the best in everyone from A-list celebrities to internet personalities over the last 24 hours and will restore your faith in humanity.

Chris Hope-Smith made his request yesterday morning, asking the internet at large to help his bullied son with some birthday wishes.

The response was sensational and birthday wishes for Ollie are still rolling in as his dad's tweet continues to spread.


Both of Ollie's parents were blown away by the gestures.


This is really one of those times where it's okay to cry all over your phone, isn't it?
