    A boy whose mother posted a now-viral video about her son being bullied at school now has Wolverine and Luke Skywalker at his back.
    The video now has over 20 million views. In it, an inconsolable Quaden, who was born with achondroplasia dwarfism, sits in the back of his mom’s car saying he wants to die, moments after an incident of bullying at his school in Australia.

    Yes, lots & lots of ppl on Twitter are sending messages of :heart: to him. It's completely heartbreaking when he says he wants to stab himself in the heart bc of being bullied. I'm glad ppl have let him know that he has WORTH and is loved.

    There's been a major crowdfunding for him. More than enough was raised for him & his family to go to Disney World. An airline also donated tickets for them. So the nice stranger who set out to raise $10K for them has now managed to raise way, way, way more. He had contacted the mom b4 he set up the GoFundMe. They're going to get to use that extra $$$ leftover after the trip to Disney World to help him out.

    I read that story and was brought to tears. I can't believe how cruel & heartless society has become. I'm glad he has received a lot of support and I hope he is able to attend school now without experiencing anymore bullying. It's terrible what disadvantaged people have to go through in this world.

    IT was a comedian with dwarfism who started it. But I'm pretty sure that after the trip to disneyland, the extra money was going to be put into anti-bullying programs.

    Terrible for anyone to be made to feel that hopeless.

    I'm pretty sure the claims that he's an adult have been debunked. His mom was posting pics of him as a baby a few years ago.
