The grandmother of the black boy whose birthday was terrorized by a parade of trucks with Confederate flags and guns has lambasted a Georgia couple for crying as they were sentenced.

Jose Ismael Torres and Kayle Rae Norton wept openly in court on Monday when they received lengthy prison terms for the harassment, which included threats of violence and racial slurs about a month after the Charleston church massacre in 2015.

“Why you crying now?” the birthday boy’s grandmother Melissa Alford told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“When that gun was loaded, did you think about your children then?” she said, referencing the loaded shotgun pointed at partygoers in Douglasville, Ga.

Prosecutors said Torres and others taunted those present by saying “We’ll blow the head off the little bastards. We’ll kill all the little n—–s.”

Torres, 26, and Norton, 25, who have three children together, were convicted on charges of terroristic threats, aggravated assault and a Georgia street gang terrorism statute.
