The Australian boy identified as Quaden Bayles who went viral on social media after his mother shared a video of him crying and threatening to commit suicide following incessant bullying over his dwarfism (Watch the video here) has reacted to allegations that he’s 18 years old.
The video went viral and elicited an outpouring of love and support as people rallied round to show the young boy how special he is. However, this led to accusations from some people that Quaden and his mum are finessing the public. Some alleged that Quaden is 18, and not 9 years old as his mother claimed (read the reports here).
In a new video shared on Instagram by Quaden’s aunt, Quaden addressed the rumours. He thanked everyone for their support and revealed that he is 9 years old.
