After Quaden Bayles’ heart breaking video went viral after being bullied at school, people all over the world have come out to support. A GoFundMe page was started by comedian Brad Williams, which to this moment has raised over $248,000 in one day! The GoFundMe page was started to show him that “he is a wonderful human being who deserves joy” and fly him to Disneyland with his mom.
William’s also mentioned on the GoFundMe page “This isn’t just for Quaden, this is for anyone who has been bullied in their lives and told they weren’t good enough”. Wiliams also has the same dwarfism condition of Achondroplasia as Quaden.
Many celebrities and artists have shown their support by donating to the GoFundMe page and by inviting him to baseball games,WWE events or other theme parks such as Universal Studios. He has also been invited to lead the Indigenous All-Stars rugby league clash with Maori All Stars in Queensland this Saturday in his native country, Australia.

The most recent support was made by the CEO of One Championship-The Home of Martial Arts, Chatru Sityodtong, who is the top MMA organization in the world. Chatri offered the boy an all-expenses-paid vacation to Singapore and learn martial arts.

What a beautiful reminder that good people still exist #HumanityRestored. Sending Quaden and everyone out there struggling through things positive vibes.
Twitter is now making claims that Quaden’s viral video is not real.
Twitter has opened up a can of worms by making claims that Quaden is not a 9-year-old child, but in fact an 18-year-old actor. His Instagram account seems to show a very happy Quaden full of branded clothing wear and shoes, along with some “expensive” toy cars. There’s even a profile on an Australian website for upcoming stars:
