The mother took to TikTok to share her devastation after her son celebrated his sixth birthday alone. The user, named @dawners86, claims in the video that she invited 22 people to the party which was held at a local park, but no one showed up.
She is sat at a table filled with party decorations and cupcakes whilst her little boy can be seen in the background playing alone.
She says: “So we are sitting at the park for JJ’s birthday party, we got everything
She continued: “Out of 22 invites… no one came… I know it’s a pandemic, but it is a park, and we have reopened in my province.
“Sorry the video is shaky, I am so upset for this poor guy. He deserves better. He’s amazing.”
The video has been watched almost three million times and thousands took the time to comment and share messages for JJ.
One user said: “This is why we ALWAYS show. No matter what. My girl is there with a gift and a smile.”
Another replied “I don’t normally show emotions or get upset about anything but when people don’t come to kids parties it is the one thing that makes me cry.”
A third added: “Happy birthday little man and don’t worry about those ‘friends’ they showed their true colours today. You don’t need them.”
A fellow mum said: “My mamma heart just broke. I have questions, what is he into right now? Where can I send him gifts? I am dead serious.”
In a follow-up video, JJ’s mum said: “All the offers to buy JJ presents are greatly appreciated. But JJ doesn’t need any toys and he has asked for any extra gifts to be sent to a children’s hospital near you.”
