Jones revealed that he was once again being bullied by his schoolmates.

After the video went viral over the weekend, African-American activist Tariq Nasheed took to Twitter to share screenshots from Keaton's mother's Facebook account, which according to him, constituted as possible racist content. They made fun of his nose, as well as the fact that he doesn't have friends.

In the clip, Keaton asks his mother: "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?". What's the point of it? Keaton asked. "Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?"

Say what you want about Kirk Herbstreit, but you can't bash him for his latest gesture.

I'm no fan of Hollywood and even less impressed with entertainers who rant about policy issues about which they know very little or take pot shots at government employees who bravely stand up and face the press each day. Disclosing to his mother how he is treated at school, he tells her of the abuse he endures, including how he is fun of his looks and social status, as well subjected to social humility such as milk being poured on him and food being forced into his clothing. Threw bread at me'.

Greg Clay, the principal of Horace Maynard Middle School where Keaton is a student, says bullying is not as "rampant" as it's been portrayed in Jones' now-viral video. It's not their fault. "Stay strong, I guess".

The video now has well over one million views and celebrities have started showing the young boy their support.

White and Guarantano were joined by singer Katy Perry and actors Mark Hamill, Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo, who each tweeted encouraging words. Hailee Steinfeld meanwhile invited Keaton to be her date to the Pitch Perfect 3 premiere.

"People that are different don't need to be criticized about it", Keaton said while his mother recorded him. In the video, I saw a kid crying not just for himself but for others.

Fox News host Sean Hannity said: "I will gladly fly them to NYC to be my guests & visit Fox News". In September, she spoke out against bullying at a luncheon at the US mission to the United Nations, encouraging parents to "come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined". Talk to your kids. "Stranger Things" actress Millie Bobby Brown, who is 13, tweeted, "I wanna be your friend".

"We all know how it feels to want to belong", Jones said in her post, "but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere".

She wrote: "My family will continue to support each other". Bullies are straight up wack, corny, cowards, chumps, etc, etc!

"This is about a kid who's been bullied and not just one kid, Keaton, there are many unspoken cases about kids being bullied".
