Hugh Jackman wanted to send Quaden Bayles, the nine-year-old victim of bullies who in a dramatic video declares he wants to die, a message in which he offers his support and friendship. Wolverine’s interpreter has joined other sports and entertainment stars, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan, to condemn bullying that has profound consequences for the victims.
The boy, so small but already so deeply troubled, showed himself with a tear-streaked face because every day he is targeted by his companions. The boy also said in the outburst that he wanted to die and wanted to commit suicide. In fact, the boy was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. The reason he is laughed at by his peers is his height.
The fundraiser launched by Brad Williams on GoFundMe to give Quaden and his family a trip to Disneyland, and support organizations that fight bullying, has in the meantime exceeded $ 276,000.
