Kimberly Jones picked up her son, Keaton, during lunch, after he was too scared to eat with his classmates. The young boy has been constantly harassed and made fun of by bullies in his school — even to the point of pouring milk on him.
Kimberly posted a video of Keaton crying and pleading with his bullies on Friday, December 7, 2017. She explained that he wanted to make the video.
“Just out of curiosity — why do they bully?” he asked at the beginning of the video. “What’s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?”
Keaton goes on to say that his bullies make fun of his nose, call him ugly, and say he has no friends. His mom asks him how it makes him feel.
“I don’t like that they do it to me, and I for sure don’t like that they do it to other people,” he said between tears.
The boy goes on to say that it’s not people’s fault if they look different. He even gives hope and strength to other kids who are bullied.
The video already has over 22 million views — and the response has been overwhelming. Not only that, but tons of huge celebrities and professional athletes have come out to show their support for Keaton — like Chris Evans, Snoop Dog, Justin Bieber, Millie Bobby Brown and many, many more.
Chris Evans invited Keaton to the movie premiere of The Avengers, and the quarterback for the University of Tennessee now calls Keaton his “little brother.”
Take that, bullies.
A GoFundMe page has also been created for Keaton and already doubled its $25,000 goal.
