Often bullied for his height, the boy already wants to end his life.
A mother from Brisbane, Australia has showed the world what bullying looks like – and it’s pretty heartbreaking! Yarraka Bayles uploaded a short video on social media sharing how her 9-year-old son, who’s born with dwarfism,is begging her for a rope so he can commit suicide.
In the said clip, Quaden can be seen in tears, telling his mother “Give me a rope, I want to kill myself.” According to Yarraka, she picked up her child from school and witnessed another “bullying episode” where another student made fun of his height. “Parents, educators, teachers – this is the effect that bullying has,” said the concerned mom.
Distressed by the situation, the mother also mentioned that the bullying happens not just at school, but “almost every time” they are in public.
The sad clip immediately went viral online and numerous netizens have since expressed support and sympathy for the poor kid.
Eventually, the viral video reached the National Rugby League of Australia. The Indigenous All Stars sent comforting messages for the bullied youngster and he was even invited to lead the team in their game against New Zealand’s Maori Kiwis.
On top of that, comedian Brad Williams made a GoFundMe page for the purpose of raising cash and sending Quaden with his family to Disneyland.
Facebook page Stand Tall 4 Dwarfism eventually shared a statement from Quaden’s family expressing how grateful they are for the positive response the clip generated.
The statement read:
“Quaden’s feeling the love and now he needs a good rest.
“We are meeting with the appropriate people in power to make changes and make a stand against bullying.”
