A mother has taken to Facebook to respond to a cruel stranger who voiced disgust at her young son’s medical condition, after words failed her in the moment.
Dallas Lynn from South Carolina was shopping in Walmart with her three-year-old son Jameus, who was wearing colostomy bags because his colon still wasn’t fully formed.
A woman behind Dallas noticed the bags, and didn’t hold back from sharing her unflattering opinion about them.
Jameus Has Had Over 20 Surgeries In His Short Two Years
During a trip to Walmart last year with her son Jameus, Dallas Lynn got an earful from an ignorant stranger who said some incredibly rude things to her. While standing in line, Jameus, 2, gestured that he wanted to be held, so Dallas Lynn picked him up.
He Has A Condition Called Hirschsprung’s Disease
As she was lifting him, his shirt rolled up to reveal two colostomy bags in his abdominal area. Jameus needs the bags to dispose of any bodily waste as a result of having 20 surgical procedures on his intestines. Diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s disease, Jameus has been in and out of hospitals numerous times in his short life.
He Needs Two Colostomy Bags To Help Him Dispose Of Bodily Waste
The woman in line behind Dallas Lynn saw the bags and said “Why in the world would you let someone do that to him?”

In her Facebook post, Dallas wrote: “I turned around speechless and just looked at her before she continued and asked why he had them,” she wrote. “I gave her the short version and basically said ‘his colon didn’t finish forming so he needed them.’”
People Responded To Her Post With Love And Support
“I left out that he had a rare disease called Hirschsprung’s disease because I was a little annoyed from her first statement.”
Some Addressed Others Ignorance…
“She then goes, ‘Well, I am sorry but I just think that is so ‘repulsing’, can you please keep his shirt down?’ At this point I just wanted to shake this woman and scream, ‘What is wrong with you?!’ But instead, I told her to have a good night and went to another line.”
