Thousands of women are throwing a guy a dance party after he was body shamed

This is a great Internet story: When an unnamed man was shamed for dancing in public, a tribe of body-positive women launched a Twitter search to throw him the ultimate dance party in California.
They found him -- and he said yes.
It all started when an anonymous person posted a surreptitious shot at the man, with photos attached, on the message board 4Chan.
"Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week," the poster wrote. "He stopped when he saw us laughing."
A screenshot of the post, labeled "Why I Hate Children," was uploaded to Imgur by the user FrozenBadger. "I find this behavior fucking despicable," FrozenBadger wrote. "If you're out there big man, fuck those kids. Keep dancing."
Most Imgur commenters shared FrozenBadger's sentiments, sending messages of support to the anonymous dancing man like "Don't ever let them dull your sparkle big boy!" and "I wish we could find him and tell him he's awesome."
One writer decided to do just that. Cassandra Fairbanks, who goes by the nameCassandra Rules, launched a Twitter campaign to #FindDancingMan.
“I decided to tweet it and our offer in the hopes if he did see it, he would see something positive instead of a bunch of people upset,” she told Buzzfeed.
