A video went viral showing 9-year-old schoolboy, Quaden Bayles, crying and saying he wants to kill himself after being bullied in school.
The video of nine-year-old Quaden Bayles was filmed by his mother after he had a tough day at school after being bullied and more internet trolls claims he lied about his age and the incident.
In the video which has been viewed over 16 million times, Quaden is seen sobbing and asking to end his life.
‘I just want to stab myself in the heart… I want someone to kill me,’ he said.
At the start of the five-minute clip, Ms Bayles said:
‘I just picked my son up from school, witnessed a bullying episode, rang the principal and I want people to know this is the effect bullying has. This is what bullying does.
‘So can you please educate your children, your families, your friends because all it takes is one more instance… and you wonder why kids are killing themselves.’
‘This is the impact bullying has a nine-year-old kid who just wants to go to school, get an education and have fun but every single fricking day something happens.
‘Another episode another bullying, another taunt, another name-calling.’
Internet trolls despite the global support the Queensland boy and his family were getting slammed them for allegedly making false claims. They claim he is an 18-year-old rich actor, model and Instagram celebrity and not a 9-year-old. Some went as far as setting up fake Instagram accounts using his photographs. These are false.
Quaden’s Instagram page and the Stand Tall 4 Dwarfism Facebook page, which the nine-year-old is a champion, have shared warning messages about several fake accounts.
This is not the first time Quaden has been targeted by internet trolls but himself and his family have always tried their best to stand above it all.
Here are some posts about Quaden Bayles that proves he is a 9-year-old and not 18-year-old as claimed by trolls.
