Leigh Francis and Jack Whitehall back campaign to change attitudes to autism


Leigh Francis and Jack Whitehall are among the stars showing their support for a new social media campaign aiming to end judgment over autism.

The #JudgeyFace campaign was was started by mother Louise Williams, who grew tired of seeing disapproving looks from strangers about the behaviour of her autistic son.

In her blog, Louise said: "They are judging him, for being a bit unusual and me for not doing something about it".

Louise put out a call for people to "show us your #JudgeyFace, then lose it for good" by challenging them to pull the most scornful face they can then take a selfie and share it on social media.


Through #JudgeyFace, Louise and the National Autistic Society aim to increase awareness about autism and the 700,000 people living with it in the UK.
