Athletes, entertainers support bullied boy

Hilda Schwartz | 12 December, 2017, 18:05

Kelsea Ballerini, a country singer and Knoxville native, declared that the next time she was in town, she would "walk into that lunchroom with you and watch the bullies say they are sorry to you".

However, even though Jones received countless support from celebrities and netizens, his mom was criticized for uploading the video of her son crying.

A Tennesee boy describing the bullying he goes through each day has gone viral and as many celebrities have given him their support the conversation has quickly turned to his mother's Confederate ties.

Kimberly Jones made her Facebook page private amidst the attention the bullying video began getting and the backlash.

Hats off to you, Mr. Herbstreit. She had posted Saturday that she could not keep up with the thousands of messages pouring in.

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, who not only helped enable America's top bully to become president, but regularly defends and excuses his bullying, on Monday tried to join the legion of stars and regular people who have sought to support Keaton and his message the bullying is "not okay".

In his video, through his tears, Keaton told viewers: "If you are made fun of, just don't let it bother you".

Do you agree with that last statement? The legislation faces an uncertain future in the Senate. We wouldn't recommend holding your breathe in hopes of a quick ruling, however.

He added: "I don't like that they do it to me and I for sure don't like that they do it to other people because it's not okay".

The photo, which is now raising questions about the Jones family being "bullies" themselves, shows Kimberly smiling ear-to-ear with a Confederate flag. According to the post, her son was so afraid to go to lunch that he would instead call home to be picked up.

Keaton replied: 'Poured milk on me and put ham down my clothes. "Stay strong, I guess". Shame on you. I really want to swear so bad.

Donald Trump Jr., father to five young children, responded to White's tweet to say he would be happy to host the Keaton family, if the trip materializes. In some well-publicized cases in recent years, bullying has been so vicious that victims have killed themselves.

"Apologies again to those tweets I can't get to", she wrote.

His story echoes that of the 17 per cent of American students who report being bullied two to three times a month or more within a school semester.
