https://www.abc.net.au/austory/about-a-boy/12803110: Quaden Bayles is a nine-year-old boy with dwarfism who just wants to fit in.

But he unwittingly found himself the target of a vicious social media pile-on when his mum Yarraka posted a video of him distraught after being bullied at school.

The video went viral and there was a huge outpouring of support.

But the haters also came out in force, accusing Quaden of being an adult who was scamming the public for financial gain.

This is how Quaden triumphed over the trolls.

Quaden Bayles and his mum Yarraka were barraged by vile and nasty messages after a Facebook video went viral. But behind the headlines was a nine-year-old boy, caught at the centre of a vicious social media storm. This is what life is like for the family now.
