Bullied Schoolboy Supported
Bullied schoolboy supported by celebrities – Mark Hamill, Chris Evans and Snoop Dogg to name a few. This follows the release of a video showing the young boy, Keaton Jones, tearfully speaking about being bullied.
He Asks, “Why do They Bully?”
Keaton’s mother recorded the video. In the video the boy asked, “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 ’em? It’s not OK.” The video has been viewed more than 440,000 times since it was posted.
“They Make Fun of my Nose”
Keaton, from Tennessee, also said in the video the kids, “They make fun of my nose, they call me ugly, they say I have no friends…they pour milk on me and put ham down my clothes, threw bread at me. 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 OK.'” The boy spoke his words as tears streamed down his face.
Snoop Dogg offered his support in a Tweet, “Say lil Man U gotta friend in me for life hit me on dm so we can chop it up love is the only way to beat hate.”
As a result the family has been inundated with messages of support. Keaton’s mother wrote, “Friends, overwhelmed is the understatement of the world right now. I love each of you for what you are doing but there is literally no way I can respond or even read all of the messages.”
