    BrittonJeanSpears got a reaction from Chaoscontrol in Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry And More Stand Up For Bullied Tennessee Student Keaton Jones   
    Ok, so according to developments, the MMA fighter was talking to someone on Instagram pretending to be the kid's mom. The GoFundMe wasn't even set up by her, but by some random dude with no connection to the family (which makes me wonder if they'll even see that money at all...  )
    And even more developments, there's no confirmation whatsoever that Keaton was using slurs at school, let alone that being the reason why he's being bullied. The way he was speaking about people who are different not being at fault for being different and not being picked on for standing out doesn't mesh AT ALL with some schoolyard punk dropping n-words left and right to me.
    Me personally, my mother is incredibly racist and discriminatory, but I have never been like that. I still get my ignorant moments every now and then, but I try to evolve and change every day. Until we get concrete proof that the bullying against Keaton was retaliation, I have to believe he's innocent. He's only a child, after all.

     I felt that his mother's help will turn in load of crap somehow, but did not expect that.

    This poor boy being bullied at school, and his mother's preoccupied with posing with Confederate flags, telling people who call her out that "us whites have to stick together against these predators" and setting up GoFundMe's for her son who was reportedly being bullied for his own bullying of PoC children and alleged usage of racial slurs. Oops.

    Keaton is a viral sensation because of his honest and emotional reaction to getting bullied in school.






    Keaton Jones is a viral sensation because of his honest and emotional reaction to getting bullied in school.

    Keaton's mom posted a video of her son crying because kids in school bullied him. It's worth mentioning it was Keaton's idea to be filmed and share his story. The youngster says they made fun of his looks, but he stood strong and relayed a powerful message: bullying is NOT OK.

    “Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?” he asks tearfully. “What’s the point of it? Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and find a way to be mean to them? It’s not OK.

    “People that are different don’t need to be criticised about it. It’s not their fault. If you are made fun of, just don’t let it bother you.”

    In just a few short days, the clip has been viewed more than 22 million times and caught the attention of some of the world's biggest music superstars, including Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and many more.

    UPDATE: As there typically is, a plot twist has since been uncovered. It appears that Jones' mom Kimberly is racist and an opportunist. Her Facebook account featured several photos of her posing next to the Confederate flag. She also created a GoFundMe page which has already collected more than $60,000 and plans on using that money to buy her family Christmas gifts. I just don't know what to think.

    Yeah that gofundme was stupid and unnecessary as well.

    To be honest, I kinda agree. I think it's super fucked up and kids can be cruel, but we've all been there at some point. 
    A friend of mine was bullied as a kid and he says it was a good thing. He learned self defense so if anyone fucked with him they'd be sorry. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's a lot more respectable than crying on the Internet :/ We're raising a generation of wussies. Sad to say but it's true.

    That part doesn’t bother me too much. It’s the confederate flag and gofundme that I hate

    Why do people bring this up like it's an issue that needs to be stopped, like yeah it sucks but we all go through it at some point in our life. It's human nature everyone experiences it and does it in some sort of way

    I don't know how to feel with that update.... no one should be bullied, period, but was this all a lie? How did she make a GoFundMe, also? Based off of this, her child being bullied? As someone else said (I think it was Danny), we should all be getting money, in that case. I'd love to make sure Christmas is ensured for my family just by profiting off of all those times I was picked on in school.
      Let's hope nature rules out over nurture and wasn't at play in his being bullied.
    Edit: So it was racism that got him bullied? Does Twitter have receipts?

    As much as I want to believe this is all a genuine thing, I feel like his mother is exploiting this child, and this is a PR opportunity for celebrities to post "charitable" things. I hope I'm wrong but I wouldn't be surprised. Plus, I've already heard the mother is a racist who started a gofundme. Lots of kids get bullied everyday, some probably worse. Do they get showered in gifts and money?

    I agree. Schools need to take more action, and be better mediators. And, also parents need to play some sort of role in relaying some kind of anti-bullying message to their kids. I think a lot can be achieved/learned from home.

    The video literally broke my heart into million pieces!! Him shaking and crying broke me!!  
    EDIT: 
    Holly twitter just exposed the crap outta of that family, apparently he got bullied because he called black student with the N word! 
    His family have a big history with  racism! All the receipts on twitter, he's trending #1 world wide for all the wrong reasons!

    You make good points. I agree, I don’t understand it either. Unfortunately, bullying just seems like one of those things that are never going to go away and we just have to do our best to cope with it. Also schools need to make it easy to report incidents so they can contact the parents.

    Everyone experiences bullying differently. It depends on how strong emotionally, and psychologically one is. People can only take so much before breaking down. 
    Personally, I decided to drop out of school because of some really nasty bullying, although a couple of weeks later child protection forced me to go back (something I'm extremely thankful for since I wouldn't have my college degree, and career right now). I look back and feel really frustrated with myself that I did't stand up for myself. I would take none of that crap if it were today. But, at that time, I found myself completely broken by it. 
    The point is, this is why - in my opinion - this video came to be. This poor child probably couldn't take it anymore, and wanted to send out this message. I like that people are reacting to it, and admitting is is not okay to drive anyone to this point. 
    I honestly will never understand why some people find pleasure in making others feel miserable. And, it's only getting worse with the internet; people take advantage of its anonymity to spread hate, and be mean to each other. It's sad, really...

    I saw this, that's really sweet. I've never gone through hardcore bullying myself so I most definitely don't know how it feels. Even if bullying is a reality and it's for the most part inescapable, things like these might minimize it.
