Sites and pages Public Shaming Tumblr and Latino Rebels projected this controversy, as people posted multiple racist screen shots of tweets and photos.

Obviously these racist comments were highly condemned by other users and influential people. As for Sebastien, he said, he was not at all intimidated by these racist comments.

"For those that said something bad about me, I understand it's your opinion," said Sebastien to CNN. "I'm a proud American and live in a free country. It's not hurting me. It's just your opinion."

Here’s how Sebastien peacefully reacted.

It wouldn’t be wrong if we say an 11-year-old has far more class then some so called patriots who do not realize the difference of being racist and patriotic. What do you think?
