Social Media Debates About The Real Age of Bullied Australian Boy
Yarraka Bayles is the mother of bullied Australian boy. She posted a video of her son, Quaden. In the video, Quaden a 9-year-old boy was crying. It is because he get bullies at his school for his dwarfism. The video uploaded at Facebook Live video this week. It raises awareness of people about the effects of bullying.
Yarraka said that her son had attempted suicide before. And in the video, Quaden asked a knife to kill himself. Yarraka also said in the video “this is what bullying does”, “can you please educate your children, your families, your friends?”.
People has viewed more than 15 million times since posted on Tuesday. A Go-Fund-Me page raises almost $360.000. They uses it to give to Quaden to send him and his mother to Disneyland in California.
“This isn’t just for Quaden, this is for anyone who get bullied in their lives and told they weren’t good enough,” said Williams on the fundraising page. “Let’s show Quaden and others that it is good in the world and them worthy of it”.
Some people on social media suspected that Quaden was 18 years old. And he was scamming the internet for money. This statement is supported by evidence of a photo that showed Quaden stands beside an adult woman and poses like an adult. The picture comes from Quaden’s Instagram account.
Some photos on Instagram posted on Quaden’s Instagram have led to the debate of his age. Queen’s mother regularly posted photos and videos on Facebook that started at the beginning of 2010.
There is a photo that shows Quaden celebrated his first birthday at the end of 2011. Then in 2019, he had celebrated his ninth birthday. So, it is not possible to verify this issue. There is no birth certificate that can be used as evidence that Quaden Bayles in the latest viral video is nine years old boy or 18 old boy.
