fontsolo The bullies need to be called out and made an example of, a message needs to be sent that this will not be tolerated He's being bullied by the very same children that are being raised by bully's... Think about that!!! As if the parents are unaware of the situation is a damn shame and embarrassment!!!
We over here in the US lllllloooovvveee Quaden!!! Hi sad that it now looks like this is a scam - search YouTube by his name Quaden your friend Kevin from INDIA🇮🇳 I think Quaden is actually just VancityReynolds trolling RealHughJackman and it's all part of a campaign for an upcoming deadpoolmovie or something...
BBCWorld You are more than them Quaden... Stand strong brother. We love you all the way from South Africa.... One love Brother ❤️🙏 You are a strong little boy bullying is so unnecessary my heart goes out to you and shame on those that are doing the bullying they are nothing you are a superhero young man
The name 'Quaden' is a red rag to bullying alone RealHughJackman , I’m so sorry that I have to show you this.
Mother shares video of distraught son, 9, bullied over his dwarfismQuaden Bayles told his mother in a video that he wanted to die because he was constantly bullied about his medical condition. 😥 Awful video , absolutely broke my heart this . Poor little darling he’s beautiful
BBCWorld Hey Quaden, How to reach you my friend.. It tears in my eyes.. May Allah bless you with loads of Happiness and success in abundance.. 😘😘😘 BBCWorld Beautiful child. Love and higs to you. ❤❤❤ Please check this story as could be fake, on twitter shows him as an 18 year old actor, what’s real?
Oh this was such a sad story be strong young man you are an inspiration to us all You are BETTER than them. Any person who can make a kid feel so bad that they want to die has a far greater disability than this kid does. BBCWorld No child should have to go through the ordeal of bullying, it can leave mental scars for life. Please those who can support this child please do. You are in my thoughts
❤️ Stop bullying right now 😡
Schoolboy bullied over his dwarfism begs mum for rope to kill himself'This is the effect that bullying has.' The pain on his face is palpable. Kids bully & can B cruel & it can B in their nature.I would educate the kids about him,his condition & what makes him ‘special’not different!eg if a kid has hair loss due to Chemo classmates having a hat day can help break barriers.❤️ So sad. Humans are cruel This is Just beyond heart breaking
Horrible, horrible young people! Bullying, why! This poor kid being unhappy at school, feel for him so much! Thinking of my 2 young daughters and how I would feel if they got bullied, as i did! 😡 Love u young man!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ This video brought me to tears...what a beautiful sweetheart of a boy he is 💕
BBCWorld I’m so happy to see people at all levels standing up for this little boy. I’m hoping his mom sees all the support he’s getting and lets him know he’s not alone. The cure for bully bystanders is people standing by bully victims. What should I say? Don't laugh! HulkHogan Leg drop em please I think that is exactly what Hugh says. The sad incident continued. I thought the man in this photo was the culprit.
Shame on the bullies. Such a negative story. I hope this young man has a positive outcome 👍 To the UK government I have no qualifications other than a car license, but I have been caring for my mother for about 4 years in the past and I think the helper job is suitable for me. Thank you for your positive consideration.
I pray for his strength and endurance; I pray for the bullies and their hatred/ignorance; I hope that he gets the help that he needs and will one day look in the mirror and see that God made no mistake with him; may God help his family help him. It's hard seeing a child suffer.
21 celebrities who have proudly normalised breastfeedingBreastfeeding shouldn't be a taboo, and these celebrities are reminding us of that.
Did Hugh put him on a horse and shout 'this is the greatest show' As a father, it breaks my heart and bring me to tears. The bullies should be disciplined so that they won't pick on another kids to bully and let them know bullying is so WRONG. TeamQuaden. Fooled again And what are these people going to do about all the other children that have and still are being bullied ? This is just one darling little boy in the whole sorry mess of hidden school bullying, there will be thousands of others who will suffer the same fate.
You are awesome！Thank you. see ya BBCWorld Watching the boy say what he said broke my heart I want to watch the Olympics opening ceremony in London. I am not a criminal. Don't get me wrong. In the light of Quaden Bayles situation I believe bullies even the young ones shld be embarrassed and made to know how dangerous their attitude is. If not they will not stop.
This is a UK immigration policy, but for me it is an escape. Please understand this point. Seriously…

I understand the main purpose of UK immigration policy from the beginning, but then use the UK Citizen. But I still love the UK. Each country is different, but I would like to apply for this policy. Please tell me how to enter again. BBCWorld I'm glad folks can stand up to wrongness' in every race little person! Or disabled ppls. 24/7 365 days of the yr. There's mad ppls. everyday who treat ppls. with kindness but aren't recognized' because their not celebs' ElizabethWarren20 blkprgsv20
Sickening that the little man felt that low, so glad people are supporting him, hopefully it will restore his faith in humanity 🙏🏻 luckily there’s more good people than bad, sending positive vibes to you Quaden 🙌🏼notobullying Please contact the Japanese government if you are interested. Occasionally, you may be mistakenly connected to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Perhaps the UK and other countries have the same policy, but I understand the final goal of the Japanese government. We will announce to you soon. What are you doing,now？ Good morning. Everyone is an individual but Kids know different, anything else is learned from uneducated adults So sad there's still some sad unhappy people with low self-esteem out there thinking bullying is ok in the 21century
meso_Akudu Bless him ❤️

A bully is a coward... 😂😂😂 I just do not understand the video! VancityReynolds turn this little guy into a superhero in your next deadpool movie, c'mon RealHughJackman has stepped up!! If he ever comes to the uk I’ll take him out for the day. Football at Oxford United, bowling, lots of food and anything he wants to do bullies are💩
This video is four years old so I hope and prey those nasty little bullies have evolved into better people but I suspect not but I hope this video raises the issue of bullying and how to deal with it. BBCWorld All the love and support for you son ♥️ He’s literally a prankster, go check his Instagram he was pretending to get bullied for some fame
Sad. I was bullied through school but back then you just had to deal with it. No one was there for me. I learned to fight my way out of it which in turn saw me go to jail. I'm 51 now, and the times I was attacked and bullied are as clear to me today as they were back then Anyibig “I’m friend with Wolverine bitch try me”
Boy, 16, left disabled after being attacked with Walking Dead-style baseball batJohn Callis-Woolsey did the Floss dance after he and Kyle Cullan targeted the boy. The focus of this should be on the violent thugs and their parents. It shouldn’t be on the dance they did afterwards. morandiniblog sad story but why blaming video games ? I have played violent video games for years and I have never and will never attack someone ! come on those guys are just 2 fuckers with no education morandiniblog I really would like to hear the parents of these two criminals about this all.
BBCWorld I do not understand this level of cruelty especially done to a child. My heart breaks for this child, shame on all of us as a society for allowing this to continue, for forgetting about someone the moment they stop trending. Made my throat go dry this. What a nice bloke and well said. Cruel world we live in and kids are even worse
BBCWorld Never seen bullies nor had any experience. During my time teachers make the rules & punishments, we get beaten from teachers if didn't study or misbehave After implementing the new law on banning teachers for beating & punishing students, bullies start to happen & increase There are some truly wicked awful people
BBCWorld You have a friend in so many of us!!! You are better, bolder and braver than most BBCWorld 👍❤️ He needs more than pen to paperc✍🏼 RealHughJackman Only one way to deal with bullies. Punch them on the nose. They don’t come back hope this is a turning point for him Oh the rallying around - that will make him less bullied
They should make him an X-Man. I can't gauge the pain he has been passing through. More power to you kid. Give them slap through your brave attitude BBCWorld Since when was a man flirting with a child excepted by the bbc? Oh ye I remember now.. $130,000 to go to Disneyland? Censorship push using emotive topics like Caroline's law effort. Up and running before the corpse was cold. Wake up.
Am I the only one that thinks the mom made it worse by humiliating him in front of like everyone!? aniqnaji This outpouring of love for the downtrodden is commendable. If I may, can I just point out the bullying of Palestinian children by Israeli soldiers.. please. BBCWorld Quaden Bayles: Australian boy in bullying video receives global support
BBCWorld Bullying is institutional at school. The educators have not done enough or are too pre-occupied with other “more important” issues. This needs to change and focus must be from the top of the Government downwards. BBCWorld
BBCWorld Educate your friend, your family, your students not to look down others&be kind as you could. No matter how good you think you are, you’re nothing if you use even negative words, body abuse, or violent action to weak , but beautiful heart people🙏💔💔💔 God loves you young man! Quanden has my friendship too... you will have more friends than those vile bullys!!
You see yourself in Donald Trump BBCWorld Good one! This boy needs a lot of cheer and support! i would do same thing if i was him. That poor boy. I would take him out of school, but understand why he wants to go to school. He’s a normal boy but just a bit smaller, Crying face Root out bullies everywhere and deliver to them a message they will not forget.
Oops! There It Is. QuadenStrong & all of a sudden... took over Twitter. Zero tolerance when it comes to bullying Just find the bastards who do the bullying and punish them in a way that it serves as an example....
Hats off to RealHughJackman ...👍👍👍if would be great if AussieGrit danielricciardo RenaultF1Team or redbullracing could some how organised Quaden to be a guest at the Australian GP,maybe make him a little race suit,sit with the team during the race,maybe a drive in a car There are 3 kinds of people: the bullies, those who defend the bullied & those who sit back horrified but do nothing. I was in that latter group until a great teacher took me aside & asked me to pick the bullied kid for my team for a group assignment. I did & never went back.
BBCWorld Today, Iran, no one turn out to vote for parlimant election. People hate Iraninan government. He will be fine now that the celebs are claiming to be his friends 🙄 A bit of context might be useful: how was he bullied, who bullied him etc. That poor boy. I would take him out of school, but understand why he wants to go to school. He’s a normal boy but just a bit smaller, 😢
Hats off to RealHughJackman ...👍👍👍if would be great if AussieGrit danielricciardo RenaultF1Team or redbullracing could some how organised Quaden to be a guest at the Australian GP..maybe make him a little race suit,seat with the team during the race... Social media is good for somethings.Good luck fella
That video broke my heart 💔😥😥😥 what is wrong with people who think it’s ok to bully people. BBCWorld teamquaden ENDViolence stopthebullies
S Amen Sending him a virtual massive hug, the lovely boy x ♥️ Hugh Jackman - what a guy! Poor lad, glad he’s getting the recognition he deserves from being mistreated. A-List Celebrities getting behind him will boost his confidence and the low life bullies will shrivel away. Quaden I was bullied at school due to my disability. Luckily I had a great teacher. He gave the children a beating who bullied me. And I wasn't bullied for the last four years. Saying that this was in the 70s when teachers could use force.
He now has billions of friends me included 🙂 As a teacher I never turn a blind eye to bullying. I was bullied all through school & my teachers did nothing about it at all. It’s mean, cruel & leaves lasting effects. It should be stopped immediately Not surprised! This happens in the schools in the UK too, and teachers turn a blind eye, or even take part. Reporting to relevant institutions such as Local Gov or Ofsted should be in place and appropriate measures taken when necessary! Currently this is impossible!
They've gotta be seen caring about things they don't give a shit about after all.
He’s got everyone as a friend now bless him
