Outpouring of love and support for boy bullied in Australia

Yarraka Bayle

Celebrities have been speaking out in support of a nine year old boy who's been bullied for his dwarfism.

Quaden Bayles' mother, Yarraka Bayle, shared a video online of her son in tears after picking him up from school in Queensland.

She was seeking advice and the footage has since gone viral, rallying support from people across the globe, including actors Hugh Jackman and Mark Hamill.


"This is what bullying does," she says in the video, in which her son also says he wants to end his life.

People have been showing their support sharing #WeStandWithQuaden with their messages, including the NRL Indigenous All-Stars team, who've asked Quaden to lead the team out in their Saturday game on the Gold Coast.
