Here’s Why Some People Are Getting Emotional About The Family Who Brought Blockbuster To Their Autistic Son
Twitter user @Javiii_Zuniga posted what quickly became a viral tweet of his family’s truly unconditional love. According to his tweet, when the Blockbuster store in his family’s town finally closed, @Javiii_Zuniga’s 20-year-old brother was devastated. As @Javiii_Zuniga mentions, his brother in on the autism spectrum and the closing of the store really took a toll on him. So his parents did what they could to ease the blow. They built him his own mini Blockbuster fully stacked with his favorite movies.
