LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) -

Adrianna Kleckley McCullar will not have anyone disrespecting her brother. But, she did live this old adage in her post: “Forgive them, father, for they know not what they do.” 

McCullar, of Lexington, said the incident happened to her brother, Reuben, after his Night to Shine prom on Feb. 9 at their church Mt. Horeb United Methodist in Lexington. This Night to Shine event was held by Mt Horeb UMC and the Harvest Church in Lexington. 

The post says that a girl saw Reuben, 33, and started mocking him. McCullar then claims the girl got her friends to join in. 

“Since you didn’t take into account that he is an individual just like you are, let me take this opportunity to teach you a few things about him,” she says at the beginning of her post. 

The full post says:

You probably didn’t even realize at first that the man you were picking on had Special Needs, but when you did and you still encouraged your friends to turn around and join you in staring & laughing at him – you became one. The man you mocked tonight is my brother, Reuben. 

Since you didn’t take into account that he is an individual just like you are, let me take this opportunity to teach you a few things about him…

For this, I am grateful because he didn’t even realize you were making fun of him. He sat and smiled his handsome smile and paid your behavior no attention whatsoever.

2) Reuben is pretty much a self-declared local celebrity. Everywhere we go, he’s waving a smiling – folks go out of their way to greet him. This is not because he is rich or has a lot of followers on Instagram. It’s because he spreads happiness and joy wherever he goes and people love him for it. Had you taken the time, I feel certain you would’ve seen this too.

3) The crown he was wearing tonight was from Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine Prom. And while it may not mean anything to you, the crown reminded…
