On Monday September 15, Doctor Phil will be interviewing Kelli Stapleton, who attempted to murder her Autistic daughter.
When the media reports on cases of violence and abuse against Disabled individuals, we MUST hold them accountable to telling these stories with respect to the actual victims of these crimes. Our lives matter!
When a Disabled person is the victim of a violent crime, we must not allow the media to talk about “lack of services”, or the “burden” of what it is like to care for us. This is the rhetoric of fear, of hate, and victim blaming. That is unacceptable.
We will watch carefully and take our concerns to Twitter.
