This Man’s Impassioned Self-Defense After Mother Calls Him ‘Dirty Biker’ Has Gone Viral
Viral| | By Brian Delpozo
Not judging others by appearance is a lesson parents are supposed to pass on to their children. However, sometimes they themselves need a reminder.
Luc Perreault is a steadily employed husband, father, and college graduate. He also happens to be a motorcycle enthusiast, is covered in tattoos, and weighs nearly 300 pounds. To say he cuts an imposing physical figure would be an understatement
Some time ago, Perreault was heading to a coffee shop in Alberta Canada when he encountered a mother and her young daughter. The child greeted him an innocent “hello” and he responded in kind. However, the girl’s mother quickly pulled her away, telling her “We don’t talk to dirty bikers.”
Hurt by the comment, Perreault took to Facebook to defend himself against the judgmental woman.
“To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton’s today,
“Yes I am a big 280 lb guy with motorcycles and full of tattoos, I am a welder, I am loud, I drink beer, I swear and I look like I would eat your soul if you stare at me wrong.
“What you don’t know is that I have been happily married for 11 years, my kids call me daddy, I am a college graduate, my mother is proud of me and tells everyone how lucky she is to have such a wonderful son, my nieces and nephews are always happy to see there m’noncl Luc.
“When my daughter broke her arm I cried more than she did. I read books, I help people, I go out of my way to thank war veterans and I even cried at Armageddon…
“So, next time I smile and say hi to your little girl and you grab her and tell her ” No no dear we don’t talk to dirty bikers” remember that even though you hurt my feelings this “dirty biker would be the first person to run into your burning house to save your little girls goldfish so she wouldn’t be sad!!!!”
Perreault’s words have now gone viral, with over 2,000 shares. They’ve remained a rallying cry for those who advocate not judging people by their looks.
