When asked if she ever spoke to school officials about the bullying, Hudson said, "I only spoke with the school's 6th grade principal".

"From what we are hearing, there was a group of kids that would go around calling him fat, ugly and worthless", Cheryl said, according to The Epoch Times. "You're not going to make it out of this bathroom.' Things of that nature", his father said.

On behalf of Cheryl Hudson, Tiffanny Allison said: "If you can't contribute monetarily, I ask that you pray for his mum, dad, brothers, family and friends".

'He was amusing, he was sarcastic, he was compassionate.

"He was my pride and joy, he was a momma's boy, and he was proud to admit that".

'He was a boy scout, and he was just your typical kid that liked to have fun.

'I'm heartbroken, I'm heartbroken. My ex-husband, my friends and I are not going to stop with the anti-bullying.

"One of the kids said "you're this" or 'you're that.' And he said 'no, I'm bi-,' Matt Leach told the news station".

"Oh my God, my heart has been ripped out of my chest and shattered in a million pieces", Hudson wrote on the family's GoFundMe page.
