How #HotPersonInAWheelchair is fighting hate on Twitter

A US YouTuber has inspired a Twitter campaign after she read a tweet that said: "Nothing sadder than a hot person in a wheelchair."

The tweet that got Annie Segarra so annoyed was actually four years old. It had been written by author Ken Jennings, known in the US for winning the classic TV game show Jeopardy! 74 times in a row - and pocketing more than $2.5m (£1.85m) in the process. 

Segarra, who tweets using the Twitter handle @annieelainey - adapted Jennings' tweet so it read "#HotPersonInAWheelchair", adding: "Cry about it, babe". She attached a photo to the tweet showed her in a chic outfit.
