Heartbreaking Video Of A 9-Year-Old Bullied Over His Dwarfism Goes Viral, And Celebs Are Stepping In To Help Him

Bullying leads to pain, sorrow, and can even make people lose their will to live. A heartbreaking video is going viral and it once again brought the topic of bullying to the forefront of most people’s minds.

In the video filmed by his mother Yarraka Bayles, 9-year-old Quaden cries and says he wants to take his own life because he gets bullied over having Achondroplasia, a form of Dwarfism, every single day.

The video even spurred some celebrities to lend Quaden a helping hand, including comedian Brad Williams who also has Dwarfism: he raised over 175k Australian dollars (and counting) to send the child and his mother to Disneyland in California. You can support the GoFundMe campaign right here.

We must warn you, Yarraka’s video of Quaden is very emotional and you should watch it at your discretion.

Yarraka and Quaden both live in Brisbane in Australia. The 9-year-old’s mother was so desperate for help that she uploaded a video of her son at his low-point on Facebook. The video has over 17 million views at the time of writing and it raised the issue of what the devastating effects of bullying are.

“I’ve just picked my son up from school, witnessed a bullying episode, rang the principal, and I want people to know—parents, educators, teachers—this is the effect that bullying has,” the boy’s mother said in the video. Meanwhile, Quaden talked about taking his own life in the video because he couldn’t stand the amount of bullying he received at school. According to his mother, he has tried to take his own life before.

Apart from comedian Williams’ support, Australia’s National Rugby League invited Quaden to lead out the Indigenous team before the All Stars game against the Maori team.

While most people sent their love and support to the boy and his mother, some internet users were skeptical and wondered whether Quaden has anger issues, perhaps, as a result of being bullied.
