The boy was featured in a Facebook post last week by the Humans of New York photoblog which documents everyday people and their lives in the city.

The post received a heart-warming response from presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who wrote: “Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing.

“You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you – there will be lots of them,” she said.

Out television host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres was also among the thousands moved to offer the boy words of comfort.

“Not only will people like you, they’ll love you. I just heard of you and I love you already,” she wrote.

The Humans of New York post has gone viral, with over 600,000 likes and almost 60,000 shares.
