Celebs Rally Around Viral Bullied Tennessee Student

posted by Sierra Marquina -

A boy named Keaton Jones has gone viral after his mom posted a video of him talking about being bullied on Facebook on Friday, December 9. The video was taken after his mom picked him up from school because he was too scared to go to lunch. 

“They make fun of my nose. They call me ugly. They say I have no friends,” the Tennessee middle school student says in the video while crying. “[They] put milk on me and put ham down my clothes, throw bread on me.”

Keaton continued: “Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not okay.”

The young boy then expresses that he feels for others who are bullied. 

“I don’t like that they do it to me. And I, for sure, don’t like that they do it to other people, cause it’s not okay!” Keaton tells his mother. “People that are different don’t need to be criticized about it. It’s not their fault.”

Ryan Seacrest, Millie Bobby Brown, Chris Evans and more celebs have since spoken out about the video, sending Keaton their support. See their reactions and more below:
