A shocking hate-filled letter attacking a Canadian family’s autistic child has sparked outrage in an Ontario community and beyond. The letter, sent by a cowardly anonymous neighbor, accuses the “idiot” autistic child of being a “nuisance” because of the noises he makes while playing outside.
Karla Begley, the mother of the severely autistic 13-year-old, told CityNews that she was stunned that someone could write something so hateful about her son, Max.
“You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let him be nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes!!!” the hostile letter reads. “That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL!!!!!!!!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!”
“One pissed off mother” then goes on to advise Begley to take her son to the park “when you feel your idiot kid needs fresh air.”
Sadly, the malicious letter goes on:
He is a hindrance to everyone and will always be that way!!!!! Who the hell is going to care for him?????? No employer will hire him, no normal girl is going to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever!! Personally, they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!! You had a retarded kid, deal with it…properly!!!!! What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!!! I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!! GOD!!!!!!
Still, it gets worse. The anonymous sender then begs the woman to take her son and move out of the neighborhood: “VAMOSE!!! SCRAM!!!!…Go live in a trailer in the woods or something with your wild animal kid!!!”
“Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!!! Either way, we are ALL better off!!!!” the letter concludes. “Sincerely, One pissed off mother!!!!!”

The hateful letter has since gone viral and Begley’s neighborhood has reportedly rallied around her and Max. The community is currently searching for the person responsible for the letter so the mother can file criminal charges against the author. Police have been contacted in the case and “should they have grounds, charges will be filed against the letter’s author,” the report adds.
“I was shaking when I was reading it…It’s awful words. You don’t know why somebody would ever do such a thing,” Brenda Millson, Max’s grandmother, told CityNews.
