As if we needed another reason to love Robert Downey Jr. A woman named Vicky Keyte posted a photo on Instagram of her 7-year-old son, Daniel, who is a huge fan of Iron Man. Daniel has cystic fibrosis and was getting bullied because of it.
Her Instagram caption reads “This is my son Daniel and he has cystic fibrosis, he is seven years old and wants nothing more to meet his idol Robert Downey Jr (aka iron man) as he has managed to get past the bullies he faces from day to day by telling them the he too has a extra special port in his chest much like iron man has his arc reactor, I am sharing this in hope that mr stark (as Daniel calls him out of the suit) could find a way to contact me on here as Daniel could really do with a little lift at the moment after a child at school has told him that all children with cf die. If this reaches him and Daniel could get a reply I hope that it could help him through his stay in hospital as it is starting to take its toll on him.”
To this, RDJ replied with a photo of him dressed in a Tigger costume from Winnie the Pooh and said “Mr. Stark here. This is for Daniel (@envy_coatings) who was having a rough day recently. When I’m in the dumps, I’ve found this little getup to be helpful. P.S. Would you like to come to the LA premiere of Captain America: Civil War as my guest? If so, have your people call my people. All the best.”
