Sean O’Brien, who won the world’s heart when he was shamed online for trying to dance with his huge body size, finally gets to party at Avalon club in Hollywood. His party was attended by celebrities such as Pharrel Williams, DJ Moby and Monica Lewinsky.

In February, an anonymous 4Chan user posted a picture of O’Brien with a nasty caption.
“Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing,” the caption reads.

Netizens came to O’Brien’s defense, slamming whoever was behind the online bullying. Cassandra Fairbanks saw the image. She then started a campaign to find him and throw a party where he can dance all he wants. Fairbanks used the hashtag #FindDancingMan to launch a Twitter campaign.

Dancing Man treated to a spa by Monica Lewinsky
O’Brien shared that the party was so far the best night of his life.
“I’ve never danced so much, it’s been the best night of my life, unbelievable. So many people have given so much support, I’m humbled. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I’m going to grasp with both hands,” O’Brien told Mail Online in an exclusive interview.
He said that Lewinsky treated him to a luxury spa.
“Monika Lewinsky has been brilliant, she bought me a foot massage as she knew my feet would be killing afterwards. She’s so thoughtful,” O’Brien marveled.
“I grew up with the Lewinsky scandal and how she has coped with it all and the person she has become, it’s fantastic, so awe-inspiring and she’s so down to earth.”

Hope Leigh, who organized the party for O’Brien, said the event was overwhelming.
“I’ve been really overwhelmed by the amount of good I’ve seen from the world in this. This is amazing,” she told ABC 7.
“It really shows power of people. If everybody comes together to do something nice look what you can accomplish.”
