Man gets humiliated for dancing in public -- but has the last laugh

8 March 2015 / 2 years 2 months ago

The internet might make a lot of promises about restoring your faith in humanity, but this story could do just that.

It begins last month when an anonymous user posted a picture of a man dancing at what looked like a concert.

“Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing.”

The heartbreaking image was then re-posted to Imgur, and the fact that someone took so much pride in being so horrible to someone who was just trying to quietly enjoy themselves upset a lot of people.

And some of those people wanted to do something nice for the ‘Dancing Man’, reports TheChive

The cause was led by Twitter user Cassandra Fairbanks, who put out a call to find the man so she and her friends could do something special for him. And it worked.

Thousands of people began using the hashtag #FindDancingMan, a large handful of which were women (MODEL women, mind you) who wanted to throw a private dance party, just for him.

As of Friday morning, Fairbanks said she had only a few leads on who he might be, but nothing solid.

Then she was sent this photo of a man who looked just like our dancing guy and was wearing the same wristband.

And lo and behold, it was him. The internet had found the dancing man!
