Katie Price plans to take Harvey to the next trial about a cruel trolling video to shame the trolls.
Phillip Lewer, 52, was cleared of the charge of sending by public communication network an offensive message on Thursday.
In November last year, Lewer shared a video he was sent on WhatsApp depicting a couple impersonating an infamous Loose Women interview with Katie and Harvey in 2016.
Hastings Magistrates Court heard the couple who made and appeared the video have been arrested and are pending trial in Scotland.
Mother-of-five Katie vowed to keep on fighting trolls and plans to take her son Harvey to court to shame them.
Speaking outside court, she told The Mirror: "I am going to take Harvey to that one. Yes I am [going to take him]. They [the couple who made the video] have been arrested."
Katie added: "I am sure if I had brought Harvey in today and they had seen what he is like, you got to have a heart and think it's out of order."

Her eldest son Harvey has Septo-optic Dysplasia, a rare genetic disorder affecting his eyesight.
Also, he has autism and Prader-Willi syndrome which can cause learning difficulties and behavioural problems.
Katie has been spearheading a campaign against online trolling which she is calling Harvey’s Law with the aim of criminalising social media abuse.
In an impassioned spiel, the former glamour model slammed the video for being “absolutely disgusting” for blacking up and mocking her son’s disabilities.

She told the court: “That is the most vile video. Lots of people make memes. It was absolutely disgusting. Painting the colour of his skin, mimicking the way he spoke and how he is blind doing the eye movement.
“It is racist, mocking disabilities, more shockingly can’t defend himself…
"Anyone who has a child, wouldn’t accept it. It’s wrong. I am my son’s voice. He needs justice. I love my son.
"Most disgusting video I have seen. That’s why I have reacted this way. It is racist, slamming his disability, he’s an innocent man."
In the video, one member of a couple sparked outrage by wearing blackface and mocking Harvey.

A woman in fake tan said: "If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?"
The man who was wearing blackface replied: "Hello, you c***."
At the time, Katie slammed the video as "disgusting" and "racist".

Katie said of the video: "I've been sent this disgusting racist mockery p*** taking video about me and Harvey mocking his disabilities, clearly planned hence the face painting!
"Does anybody know these disgusting humans as I will be reporting this to the police #harveyslaw words cannot describe how upset I am this is so cruel.
"These people need reporting."
