Katie Price has encouraged the trolls who abuse her son Harvey to meet up with her as she wants to know what their motivations are.

The 17-year-old, who is partially blind, on the autistic spectrum and lives with the genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome, has been targeted by cruel abuse online over the years.

Price shared in a video to her YouTube channel: “I want to know what makes someone want to sit there, troll my son and say 'I wish your son died'.

“Why would people take time out of their day to mock my son's head onto something and joke about it?"

She added: "I want to know if there's anyone out there who's got the balls to come and meet me. If you've been a troll of mine or been one of Harvey's trolls come and meet me. I want to know what makes you tick, what makes you want to do it...it's so wrong.

"It's not acceptable and it's not funny."

Price has previously spoken about how her son will not be hidden away because of his disability, telling Channel 5 news it was "good" for him to be in the public eye as the visibility could help others.

The 41-year-old has also pushed for the creation of Harvey’s Law, a measure to criminalise online trolling which she proposed to MPs during a trip to Parliament.

Last month Harvey, who is an ambassador for autism awareness charity Anna Kennedy Online, asked trolls not to bully him in a video Price posted to her Instagram account.

In the footage he said: “Please don’t be horrible to Harvey.”

Harvey’s father is Dwight Yorke, although the footballer has never played an active part in his life.

Price shares two children with ex husband Peter Andre, Princess, 12, and Junior, 14. She also has son Jett, six, and five-year-old daughter Bunny with her third husband Kieran Hayler.
