It's not what it appears to be

The story of an 11-year-old Tennessee boy who wanted to put an end to bullying has gone viral several times for many reasons. The saga was growing stranger by the minute on Monday, Dec. 11 with the same celebrities who once championed the young boy now calling out his mother for her alleged racism and money grubbing. Keaton Jones and his mother Kimberly have finally reached out to dispel all of the rumors surrounding their viral video and what they really hoped to accomplish with its notoriety.

It all began when Kimberly Jones posted a video of her sixth-grade son Keaton crying and saying that he had been bullied at school. “Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not okay,” Keaton questioned. He claimed that his schoolmates previously made fun of how he looked, poured milk on him, and put food in his clothing during lunch. He asked him mom to pick him up from school that day because he didn’t want to endure it again.

Kimberly asked her audience to talk to their kids about being bullied or bullying others because she wanted to put an end to the bad behavior.
