Family of Bullying Victim Keaton Jones Thanks Social Media for Overwhelming Support

Posted December 12, 2017

Keaton Jones, a Tennessee middle schooler, is speaking out after an emotional Facebook video about being bullied. What's the point of it?

"Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?"

The American Psychological Association defines bullying as "a form of aggressive behavior in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another person injury or discomfort".

"Keaton didn't get to choose the family that raised & shaped him, you smug ghoul", tweeted Patton Oswalt after a Twitter follower asked him whether he would withdraw support after the allegations of racism.

"People that are different don't need to be criticized", he said, adding that he isn't the only one the bullies pick on. They say I have no friends, ' he sobbed.

"If you aren't bleeding, no bones are sticking out & you can breathe, STOP crying!" she allegedly wrote. He made the video about more than just him.

Keaton's mother, Kimberly Jones, recorded the video after picking him up from school because Keaton said he was too scared to go to lunch. "Stay strong, I guess".

Ironically, the first lady's visit was in support of a "No One Eats Alone Day" event, which encouraged students not to leave anyone out at lunchtime by finding new friends to eat lunch with - a campaign created to help prevent bullying.

But it also sparked backlash over unrelated social media posts by Kimberly Jones and her daughter, Lakyn Jones, featuring photos of the Confederate flags; and a wave of fake social media accounts from people trying to cash in on Keaton's fame. Hailee Steinfeld meanwhile invited Keaton to be her date to the Pitch Perfect 3 premiere.

In the world of news, Jones was met with praise from Fox News host Sean Hannity. "I wanna be your friend ( but srsly)", she tweeted.

The video of Keaton that became a rallying call to end bullying was also removed from the page. Then, just before 7 p.m., the profile picture was changed, the account's display name was set to "tre", and the bio read, "Selling verified pages dm (direct message) me to buy!"

Country music star Kelsea Ballerini promised Keaton to visit him in the lunchroom when she visits her hometown of Knoxville.
