The ‘Dancing Man’ has had his day! Sean O’Brien, who was made fun of online for dancing at a concert in March, has gotten his sweet revenge against fat shamers in the form of a star-studded party, paid for completely by GoFundMe. So amazing!

Sean O’Brien, better known as “The Dancing Man,” mingled with celebrities and Hollywood partygoers alike on May 23, during a party in his honor at the Avalon Nightclub. The giant dance party was set up in response to cyber bullies who had previously made fun of Sean for dancing at a concert in England earlier this year. So great!

Andrew WK, Monica Lewinsky, Moby and more came out for the fun party, while Pharrell also lent his support via a video message. Thanks to a GoFundMe page, Sean’s trip from England to America was completely paid for.

In March, when the original photos of Sean dancing surfaced along with some hateful comments, a writer reached out to Twitter to get help with tracking the British man down. Her efforts went viral, which is how the fundraiser began.

“When that [photo] first came out and they were teasing you, I bet you thought, ‘Man this is not cool.’ But there was a miracle in it,” Pharrell said. “Because some people saw it and those people decided that they needed to stand up for, not only you, but for anyone in your position that just wants to trust themselves and is criticized or ridiculed for it.”
