Aaron Paul put his celebrity platform to good use this week by tweeting out his support for Aaron Hill, the 16-year-old boy with autism who was recently attacked by a peer at a Florida party.

Hill's story went viral after a video of the graphic assault was uploaded to the Internet. The "Breaking Bad" actor took to Twitter to join others calling for justice for the teenager using the hashtag #JusticeForAaron. In a heartfelt note, the 34-year-old expressed his sympathy, and invited Hill and his family out to Los Angeles for a trip to Disneyland.

Paul also expressed his dismay at the behavior of Hill's attacker, Andrew Wheeler, who was arrested for his role in the Okeechobee attack.

Hopefully the star's gesture will continue to bring attention to the horrible incident, and bring #JusticeForAaron.
