A FAMILY is taking legal action against online ‘trolls’ who called for the death of their terminally ill son.
Adrian Hinojosa has always wanted to be a bullfighter, but his dreams were cut short when he was diagnosed with an incurable bone cancer last year.
The bull-fighting world took the eight-year-old boy into their heart and organised a corrida in Valencia, where he was taken into the ring.
They have also begun collecting funds to help research the disease.
But a small faction of anti-bullfighters, or anti-taurinos, disagreed with the move and began calling for the boy’s death on social media.
One user wrote: “Die now, die now, a sick child who wants to be cured to kill innocent and healthy herbivores who also want to live. Anda yaaaaa! Adrian, go die!”
Another added: “I don’t care about his life, and he’s probably being treated in the public system, using my money!”
Bullfighters lent their support to Adrian on social media, using the hashtag #Adriantevasacurar (Adrian you will be cured).
His father says the support and his time in the ring has given Adrian an ‘injection of strength.’
