WHY DO THEY BULLY?
Bullying is not okay and my heart breaks for Keaton Jones from Tennessee. A message to Keaton, stay strong and don’t let these bastards keep you down. Keaton’s mom, Kimberly Jones said in a Facebook post Friday she had just picked up her son, Keaton, from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch. SAD! Before zero tolerance in schools, I can remember a time and place in a time long ago when one used to be able to defend oneself against bullying with a knuckle sandwich. Don’t you remember that to LB? I can’t say I understand the go fund me page for Keaton. Giving money is not going to stop bullying.
A Tennessee woman’s video of her son’s tearful recounting of being bullied at middle school has prompted a wave of support from athletes and entertainers. One star is even going as far as to reward the young boy in a big way.
The video of Keaton had more than 18 million views as of Sunday, and a crowdsourcing page for his future education has raised more than $29,000.
The post has gone so viral that celebrities far and wide are taking notice and offering their support to young Keaton. However, one star is going above and beyond to reward the young boy for his persevearance. Chris Evans, who will reprise his role as Captain America in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War,” took to Twitter to not only share his support, but to invite the young boy to Los Angeles for the film’s premiere.
“Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better,” the star wrote. “While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?”
