Deformed child actors and Gary Coleman

28 May

It disturbs me how much TV shows and movies cast children who have abnormal growth issues because they look ‘cute’. It’s sort of like the heavily deformed Pug dog breed, a breed so hideously misshapen they no longer have cranial brow ridges, struggle to breath and can no longer give birth naturally.

Deformed PugGary Coleman suffered from a congenital kidney disease caused by focal segmental glomerulosclerosis which halted his growth as a kid, leading to a 4 ft 8 in stature and an exaggerated childlike appearance. (awww)

On the TV Show ‘Webster’ we have Emmanuel Lewis who is now 4’3″, qualifying him as a dwarf. (growth disorders are so cute)

Other examples include child actor Atticus Shaffer, (unborn, hancock) who has type IV osteogenesis imperfecta, a bone disease that also heightens his “cute” appearance. (so adorable)
