Jonathan Novick, a 22-year-old New Yorker with Dwarfism, he made this short documentary profiling the harassment he endures on a daily basis. He wanted to show the world what life is like in his shoes.
Novick hid a camera under his clothes and started walking around the city and used his incredible footage for a short documentary: “Don’t Look Down On Me.”
Also, a lot of people seem to think it’s OK to take photos of him. One guy even says that he looks like another little person that he saw on TV and then claims “I hope I didn’t offend you. Can I get a picture?”
And outright harassment.
“The next time you see someone who is different than you, think about what their day might be like,” Jonathan Novick says.
