US comedian FunnyBrad raises more than £154,000 to send nine-year-old boy bullied over dwarfism to Disneyland

Brad Williams, who also has dwarfism, says he wants Quaden to know he is 'a wonderful human being who deserves joy'.

Williams said any extra money that isn't spent on Quaden's trip of a lifetime will be donated to anti-bullying and anti-abuse charities. Image: The page has raised thousands of dollars "This isn't just for Quaden, this is for anyone who has been bullied in their lives and told they weren't good enough. "Let's show Quaden and others, that there is good in the world and they are worthy of it," he wrote. Bayles, who is Aboriginal Australian, has been invited to lead the Indigenous All-Stars out on to the field in their rugby league clash with the Maori All Stars in Queensland on Saturday. The nine-year-old is also no stranger to the camera, according to his profile on a talent website, in which he says he has a"bright and bubbly personality" which"makes people laugh". He added in the bio:"I embrace my uniqueness and inspire people to be happy and appreciate the simple things in life." Also listed are his appearance credits, which shows he was the subject of an episode of Australian current affairs programme Living Black and has been interviewed for talk show Studio 10. He is also the face of Stand Tall 4 Dwarfism - an awareness page set up by his mother, Yarraka. Hugh Jackman supports bullied schoolboy Jackman, who starred in The Greatest Showman and Les Miserables, says in his message on Twitter:"Quaden, you are stronger than you know mate, and no matter what, you've got a friend in me. "So, everyone lets please be kind to each other, bullying is not OK. "Life is hard enough, so let's remember, every person in front of us is facing some kind of battle, so let's just be kind." Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, also commented on the footage after it was shared on social media. He wrote:"The cruelty is as astonishing as it is heartbreaking." Quaden's mother Yarraka Bayles said:"We could never have dreamt in our wildest dreams that it would've gone worldwide and created such a media frenzy. "There are way too many people suffering in silence and my heart goes out to those families that have already lost their children to bullying. It's an international crisis and it demands urgent attention." Meanwhile, Sky News spoke to Gillian Alcantara, a social worker with the same condition as Quaden, who said she hoped the attention would begin an"open dialogue" and wouldn't just be a"five-minute wonder". She said:"I think this is really positive, especially for Quaden. He certainly needs some empowerment. However, I don't want it to be a five-minute wonder. "When all the dust settles down, I don't want him to have to go back to all that in his life because it's a seriously depressing video. "He needs to be able to have a happy, engaging life and do what all his peers do." Image: Gillian Alcantara says Quaden 'needs to be able to have a happy, engaging life' Speaking about what could be improved, she added:"It's a matter of education. "The school has a duty to safeguard their pupils, but it's not about fear, it's about educating the pupils that it's not acceptable behaviour. "And if it doesn't stop, it needs to be challenged. He has the right to engage in education free from abuse." Read more: Sky News

funnybrad People seem to think it’s a scam and they are just going to be given loads of money to spend as they like. It’s to fund a trip and the rest to help stop bullying. Do you not think someone wouldn’t notice when they went to see them? funnybrad Apparently the wee lad is an 18 year old actor the woman's voice in the video is not his mother somethings fishy going on here, has the world and the media been duped big time if so this is shocking

funnybrad funnybrad Ne pleure pas '' Petit bout damour'', je dis petit car tu es un enfant, moi, kom tant d'autres, ns pensons et prions pr toi, ke ta sffrnce se transforme en Joie.. Dis à tous ces mécréants, :' 'je suis de petite taille et alors, toi tu es grd' ', il y a de tout ds notre monde... funnybrad Ne te tue pas Petit Bonhomme, tu peux faire tant de bien ds cette vie, tu peux réconforter les cœurs brisés, car, toi aussi, tu auras connu la souffrance...

funnybrad Expliqué leur ke tu n'es pas si différent d'eux, je la différence est même une richesse... Plus tu es différent, plus tu es riche.. À l'intérieur de toi, cette richesse sera Ta Force mentale intérieure, tout au long de ta vie. Que mon Dieu, des armées, d'Isaac, de Jacob te garde funnybrad But he’s a actor, a model, has a pretty popular Instagram account and there are photos there of him with a very expensive car, lots of money and guns. This really is a scam and are happily promoting it

funnybrad its cruel to have had him when anomalies are caught early enough in pregnancy. poor boy, this life was imposed on him funnybrad Matey is an ugly kid mind. funnybrad I mean if this is real then it’s sickening! But I also can’t understand why rather then filming his meltdown did someone not put a comforting arm around him in his moment of need?

Celebrities rally around boy in bullying video'Quaden, you are stronger than you know... and no matter what, you've got a friend in me' - Hugh Jackman He’s got everyone as a friend now bless him They've gotta be seen caring about things they don't give a shit about after all. 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!

funnybrad How & why at the age of ‘9’ is he privy to knowledge of using a rope & just what it can do?! funnybrad You know what son your worth soooooooo much more than them little shit bullies here's my ❤and here's 👋 xxx funnybrad Why keep showing this if fake funnybrad 154k to Disneyland? Ayeeeee He flying by private jet or what

Hugh Jackman sends message of support to schoolboy bullied for dwarfism whose emotional video went viralQuaden Bayles' mother shared footage of her son in tears to raise awareness of the consequences of bullying He should take Peter Dinklage as role model. He absolutely gives zero fucks and wears his dwarfism like an armor. The real wolverine was a dwarf. Cruel world, needs more humane and conscious attitudes against brutal acts of imminent dehumanization.

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

Comedian raises £100,000 to send bullied child to Disneyland'This is for anyone who has been bullied in their lives and told they weren’t good enough,' says Williams Yes, because THAT'S what this child needs. A trip to Disneyland. Not medical attention, not a roof over his head, food and clothing, y'know, that Maslow Pyramid of basic human needs. Nice going. Real smooth. Honest to God, if I knew my son is bullying another child, I´d feel like the worse parent on Earth. What sort of adult raises a child to feel intitled to humiliate another human being? PArents and kids, all a disgrace. Useless people occupying Earth. elminiedip I'm still crying...
