Russell Crowe Responds To Dad’s Plea For Bullied 9-Yr-Old, Leads Hundreds Of Celebrities In Sweetest Birthday Wishes.

A dad named Chris Hope-Smith– from Leeds in West Yorkshire, England– posted on Twitter explaining that his young son, named Ollie, was struggling with a bully who makes him feel worthless. With Ollie’s 9th birthday coming up, Chris asked if any famous people could send Ollie messages of encouragement for his birthday.


“I would love someone to tell him he does mean something and bullying is not ok, ever.”

British hip hop artist Stormzy responded, calling Ollie a “lil legend.”

The character designer for the Simpsons, Eric Keys, sketched Bart Simpson for Ollie along with a birthday wish.

The England football team wished Ollie well, adding that they’d love to meet him!

Even a former Olympic athlete from Ollie’s hometown gave Ollie a shoutout, saying he’d love to meet him and even give him some swag from Team Great Britain for his birthday!

In addition, Ollie got messages from TV personalities, broadcasters, radio DJs, musicians, actors, dancers, an astronaut, and more!

Perhaps the most internationally recognizable star to tweet at Ollie is Academy Award winner Russell Crowe.

These are just a handful of the hundreds of tweets from celebrities (and thousands more from other Twitter users) wishing Ollie a very happy birthday.

Ollie’s mom responded with a series of tweets via Chris’s account, thanking everyone for the outpouring of love.

Dad said he never expected this to blow up the way it did, but now hopes others will pass on the positivity!

Happy birthday, Ollie!
