Memes are powerful. They usually consist of a picture and some words. The right mix of these two ingredients can compel others on the Internet to share them. One meme that has been spreading like crazy makes fun of a little boy with a disability.

The little boy is Jameson Meyer. He is 4, lives in San Antonio, Texas, and has Pfeiffer syndrome. Also called craniofacial syndrome, Pfeiffer syndrome affects the way a person’s bones grow in the skull, hands and feet.

Jameson’s mom AliceAnn Meyer said "Internet trolls" stole a picture off of an article she wrote about his condition, branded it with profane text and passed it along to other people.

"It's basically making fun of the way he looks," AliceAnn Meyer of San Antonio told ABC News in a Feb. 2, 2016, story. "The first time I saw it I just kind of looked at it and said 'It's not even funny.' Someone actually took the time to sit down and (create) it and I don't understand that. I was shocked, for sure."

Meyer was able to get Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to remove the meme, but people keep reposting it. 

In a post on her personal blog called "This Is My Son Jameson, And No, You May Not Use His Photo," Meyer responded to those who keep reposting the hateful meme. 

"Exactly one week ago I spent my Saturday night fighting an individual to remove my son’s photo from his Facebook page, where it had been liked 5,000 times and shared nearly 3,000," Meyer wrote. 

"It was no easy feat and took 100's, maybe even 1,000’s of reports being submitted, an army of people fighting with me. So, to everyone that 'LOL’d,' shared, and posted that meme, let me start by introducing you to the child you find so funny. His name is Jameson. He is very real, and he was born with Pfeiffer syndrome."
