Sarah Palin is being slammed for being 'demeaning' to people with Down syndrome after sharing shots of her own son Trig hysterically crying in a store, in a meme meant to attack protesters.

Palin posted the meme Tuesday to her Instagram account contrasting how she says protesters think they appear versus how she believes they really come off. The top half of the meme features female women warriors with the caption 'What protestors [sic] think we see.'

Half - Meme - Son - Trig - Down

The bottom half of the meme features her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, sporting his sweatshirt 'Homie with an extra chromie,' crying hysterically at Walmart. Palin captions the three-shot of her son: 'What we really see.'

In the caption next to her meme, Palin writes: 'What protestors [sic] (who can't explain what they're protesting) think we see -vs- what we really see,' followed by a laughing emoji. She also issues a brief apology to her son writing 'sorry Trig!'

Palin - Share - Meme - Twitter - Image

Palin attempted to share the aforementioned meme to Twitter, however it appears that she left off the actual image of the warriors and her son on the 50/50 split.

Only her writing in the sidebar appeared to copy over, so the Twitterverse did not get the 'full picture.' In her tweet, she further implored people 'Have YOU your own comparison?!'

Protesters - Meme - Caption - Instagram - Post

Protesters is spelled wrong in both the meme's caption and the writing next to her Instagram post. Trig has been pictured in the sweatshirt before.

Palin's post came under intense criticism by almost everyone who decided to leave a comment.
