This screenshot of a month-old post on internet message board 4chan has been getting a LOT of attention online...
dancing_man1.jpg

It shows two photos of "Dancing Man" - one where he is happy and dancing and the other where he is standing still looking humiliated. The users poste read: "Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing." The screenshot has now been shared widely by people who are disgusted that the man was cruelly bullied when he was trying to have some fun.

AND NOWa group of over 1700 women want to throw a dance party just for him in the hopes of putting a smile on his face!

There's even a #FindDancingMan hashtag dedicated to the causeCassandra Fairbanks, who started the Twitter campaign, told Buzzfeed she was worried about the risk of embarrassing the man further by sharing the photo more widely - but as it was already out there she decided to go ahead. 
 
She said "I decided to tweet it and our offer in the hopes if he did see it, he would see something positive instead of a bunch of people upset."If you think you might know who the dancing man is, you can tweet@CassandraRules with your information.
