Trolling Campaign

In 2011, threads regarding Adalia Rose began appearing on the 4chan imageboard /b/. Memes about Adalia and her condition, which generally mocked her appearance, grew in popularity.

On July 15th, 2012 a Facebook page called "Stop the aliens before its to late" was created. This page posted images of Adalia photoshopped in alien movies or captioned pictures, making fun of her striking appearance and saying she's an alien.

Many responded negatively to the group. "Help Stop These Jerks From Making Fun of Adalia Rose" and "Ban the Page 'Stop the aliens before it's too late' cause it's sick" launched. These groups claim to support Rose and hoped to bring awareness to trolling against her.[4][5][6]
