An 8-year-old boy who decided to dress up as Hillary Clinton for Halloween was attacked with anti-LGBT slurs on Twitter over the weekend.
A Brooklyn mother on Sunday tweeted a picture of her son in the Clinton costume.
"Our 8 year-old son is with you @hillaryclinton today and everyday," the tweet explained.

In a follow-up tweet, the mother said that her son had stepped up when her daughter declined to go trick-or-treating as Clinton.
However, some on Twitter lashed out at the mother and her son.
