Keaton Jones, a young Tennessee boy who lives outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, has received an outpouring of support from across the world after a video of him tearfully describing his experience with bullying went viral.
The boy in the video, Keaton Jones, can be seen tearfully explaining to his mother the impact that bullying has had on his life.
The video now has over 15 million views on Facebook (and millions more on Twitter) at the time of this writing,
For the record, Keaton asked to do this AFTER he had he me pick him up AGAIN because he was afraid to go to lunch. My kids are by no stretch perfect, & at home, he’s as all boy as they come, but by all accounts he’s good at school. Talk to your kids. I’ve even had friends of mine tell me they’re kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people. We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere.
Keaton has since received an outpouring of love and support from around the world, including Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker, UFC President Dana White, UFC fighter Paige VanZant, Stranger Things star Millie Bobbie Brown, actress Patricia Arquette, We Are The Millers actor Will Poulter, super agent Scooter Braun, players from the University of Tennessee football team, and more.
Showing that there is more good than evil in the world, Delanie Walker invited Keaton and his family to a Titans game, Dana White invited him and his family to Las Vegas for some UFC action, and the Tennessee Volunteers will be eating lunch with Keaton this Tuesday.
