Quaden Bayles’ model sister says ‘f**k the bullies’ in moving message of support for bullied brother with dwarfism – The Sun
THE model sister of a bullied schoolboy with dwarfism — who asked his mum for a rope to end his life— has hit back at trolls.
Quaden Bayles, nine, received an outpouring of support from the public and celebrities such as Hugh Jackman after his mum Yarraka Bayles shared a clip of him distraught.
Quaden and his mother were forced to disappear for a while from social media after relentless trolling online.
One allegation was that he was really an 18-year-old actor.
The family broke their silence today when they announced they were turning down a crowdfunded trip to Disneyland and will give all the money to charity instead.
And now, his model sister Guyala Bayles, 20, has rallied behind her little brother.
Writing on Instagram, she said: "I say F**K the bullies and the hatters! [sic] You’re the coolest, smartest, strongest and the most sweetest kid I know! You’re not alone and we’re all here for you my bruh."
The young woman is currently signed to Chic Management and recently worked on a campaign for Maybelline cosmetics.
Quaden, of Brisbane, Australia, has been inundated with support after a heartbreaking video of him crying hysterically over cruel jibes about his height went viral.
He told his mum Yarraka: "Give me a knife — I want to kill myself. I just want to die right now."
A GoFundMe page started by US comic Brad Williams — who also has dwarfism — initially aimed to raise $10,000 (£7,800) to send him to Disneyland.
But it raised many times the target as donations flooded in from around the world.
Now his family say they are grateful for the support but have decided not to accept any of the money.
His aunt Mundanara Bayles told NITV: "What kid wouldn't want to go to Disneyland, especially if you have lived Quaden's life.
"To escape to anywhere that is fun that doesn't remind him of his day to day challenges.
"But my sister said, 'you know what, let's get back to the real issue'.
"This little fella has been bullied. How many suicides, black or white, in our society have happened due to bullying.
"We want the money to go to community organisations that really need it."
It is believed the money will go to anti-bullying charities in Australia and the US.
