Celebrities Rally to Send Boy to Disneyland After Bullying Video Goes Viral

A heartbreaking video of 9-year-old Quaden Bayles went viral this week.

Quaden has dwarfism and has been the victim of bullying. His mother went on Facebook Live to show school officials and classmates how much Quaden was hurt by the taunting. The boy was sobbing uncontrollably in the back of his mother's car -- at one point saying to the camera: "Give me a knife, I want to kill myself."

Comedian Brad Williams also has dwarfism. He started a GoFundMe page to raise money to send Quaden to Disneyland. As of now, that page has raised over $200,000.

Australian actor Hugh Jackman also showed his support for Quaden -- posting a video message to Twitter saying, "No matter what, you've got a friend in me."

"Quaden, you are stronger than you know, mate. Everyone, let's just please be kind to each other. Bullying is not OK, period."

Quaden also has the support of the National Rugby League's Indigenous All-Stars team. He will lead the team out before Saturday's NRL pre-season match against the Maori All-Stars in Queensland's Gold Coast,

"Just want to wish you all the best brother. We know you're going through a hard time right now but the boys are here, we've got your back. We're here to support you, bud," Indigenous All-Stars fullback Latrell Mitchell said.
