KATIE Price's son Harvey has begged fans to sign her anti-troll petition against "people who are horrible" to him.
The 42-year-old star shared a heart-breaking video of the 18 year old on her Instagram Story as her new petition gains traction online.
In the clip, Katie says: "Do you want people to sign mummy's petition?" and he replies: "Yes, Track A Troll."
She continues: "Because it's people who do what to you, Harvey?"
Harvey says: "People who are horrible to me", adding that his mum will "tell off" those who abuse him.
Katie goes on: "Exactly, and then the police will tell them off, won't they? Because they mustn't be horrible.
"What must you do to people?"
The teen answers: "Be safe and happy", signing off the sweet video by thanking fans for signing.
Katie launched her new petition, which calls to make verified ID a requirement for opening a social media account, yesterday.
It already has over 132,500 signatures, and she hopes that the cause will prevent trolls from having anonymity when they target victims online.
Katie has been tirelessly campaigning for harsher consequences for online abuse, with Harvey cruelly subjected to it for years.
She recently admitted that it makes her feel as though she failed as a mother, sharing: "As a mother, it’s so hard to know I can’t protect and shield my children and it breaks my heart what I have to read and go through with my children, especially Harvey because he just gets abuse."
And it's not just Harvey who is targeted online, with Katie's 15-year-old son Junior – who she shares with ex Peter Andre – also revealing vile abuse he received last month.
Sick messages that were sent via Instagram told Junior to kill himself – and also used derogatory slurs against his big brother.
Harvey's disabilities include ADHD, autism, genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome and septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness – and he has been victim to cruel abuse for years.
Katie launched her campaign for Harvey's Law in 2017, and has even taken it to Parliament.
As well as sick jibes about his disabilities, Harvey is also subjected to racism – with Katie campaigning for the government to change the law to tackle online trolls.
She has called for the "virtual bullying" to be stamped out with a new law, which would see social media users have to hand over details to end anonymous abuse.
Katie has also called for abusers to be "named and shamed" on a register where employers can check for improper behaviour online.
The star previously admitted that she believes trolls "get a kick" out of being exposed for posting abuse online.
She said during an appearance on This Morning: "I'd love to go and meet some of these trolls, it's something I'd want to do – ask them what goes through their head? Why would they want to sit there and make these comments and videos? What are they getting out of it?"
Calling for every social media account to require an official ID upon signing up, Katie continued: "At the moment, they can close you down but you can open another account and just start using again.
"And I think the more you say it hurts… sometimes it just encourages them. Especially when I have named and shamed a few of them, I think they get a kick out of it.
"That is why I am doing what I am doing – as soon as something is in place, as soon as these trolls know that you will get fined or put on a register, or you could even go to prison and get a criminal record, I do think it will slow down.
"But at the moment there is nothing in place so people think it's funny – also, the people who retweet them are just as bad, I don't know what they get out of it."
