UPDATE: This story is currently still developing, and sources are now coming out saying that this entire thing could be a scam on Kimberly Jones’ part, and that Keaton himself might be the bully. Different pictures including the family holding a confederate flag are beginning to surface, and honestly, we have no idea what’s going on anymore. Moral of the story, be nice everyone, life’s too short to be an asshole.
There’s no denying that this world has a serious problem with bullying, and the most recent viral video shines a bright light on this issue.
In the video, an elementary school boy from Tennessee named Keaton opens up with his mom about being bullied at school. It’s a heartbreaking watch, but a necessary one.

The video has been retweeted thousands of times, including celebs and influencers. They’ve sent their love to Keaton and condemned the abhorrent behavior of the bullies, giving Keaton a platform he deserves. While bullying is something almost everyone experiences, it doesn’t have to be. It’s great seeing these influencers with large followings use their celebrity for good.
STOP BULLYING! I am so serious. We must spread love and be kind to ONE ANOTHER. ❤️❤️❤️ https://t.co/maDF7QSbvT
