- A new video surfacing on social media is accusing 9-year-old dwarf child Quaden Bayles of being a racist
- Quaden went viral earlier in the week after his mother uploaded a video of him crying and saying he wanted to die
- On Friday, an online rumor went viral accusing the child of being an 18-year-old scam artist
- Since learning Quaden is actually a child, many social media users are still claiming the entire incident was scam by the family
The last week has been a rollercoaster of emotions if you have been following the story of 9-year-old Quaden Bayles. Quaden is a dwarf child who went viral last week after he was seen crying and saying he wanted to die in a video uploaded by his mother, Yarraka Bayles. A new video on social media accuses Quaden of being a racist.
Video Claims Quaden Bayles Is A Racist
The video was recorded from his mother’s Facebook with a cellphone. One upload titled “Quaden Bayles – Anti White racist rant” has already received over 70,000 views on Saturday alone. In the video, Quaden appears to be arguing with people in the comment section of Bayles’ live. It sounds like the video starts with Quaden saying “if you are mocking me right now, you’re a racist.”
Quaden at one point is heard saying “you did not come here first.” After going on a short rant about aboriginals, Quaden appears to antagonize Facebook commenters. “What? What are you gonna do about it? Huh?” Quaden then accuses the commenter of being racist against black people.
Quaden Was Also Accused Of Being An Adult Scam Artist
Unfortunately, the original video is no longer available since Bayles appears to have disabled her Facebook account and Quaden’s Instagram account on Friday. It is not clear if the child was being antagonized by people in the comment section of the video. It is also not clear where Bayles was during the video stream.
The video is being used to push an online claim that Quaden and his mother are scamming people out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The claim began after a Facebook user said Quaden was actually 18-years-old. Quaden is, in fact, 9-years-old, and his history in the media and social media helps prove his age.
Further adding to the rumors, American comedian Brad Williams—who also has dwarfism—started a Go Fund Me to send Quaden to Disneyland. Once that campaign raised over $400,000, people began speculating the entire story of Quaden being bullied is a huge scam. Many appear to think Bayles has control over Williams’ Go Fund Me campaign.
Williams has already publicly said Quaden is only receiving a small percentage of the money raised to go to Disneyland. The rest of the money will be donated to anti-bullying and anti-abuse charities. In other words, no Quaden’s family is not getting hundreds of thousands of dollars from the current Go Fund Me campaign.
