Sports world's incredible support for bullied boy

  • A kid asked his bullies why they pick on him, and the whole internet answered

From all of the responses on social media, that someday is now for him. They "put milk on me and put ham down my clothes, throw bread on me". I've even had friends of mine tell me they're kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people.

On Friday, his mother, Kimberly Jones, shared a video on Facebook of her son detailing the bullying he's experienced at school. I'm sure their parents would not approve of their actions.

"People that are different don't need to be criticized about it, It's not their fault", he said. Why do you find enjoyment out of taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them. Nevertheless, he manages to offer advice to others who may be getting bullied, too. "Stay strong, I guess", he adds.

"If you are made fun of just don't let it bother you". "It's hard. But ... it'll probably get better one day".

Kimberly posted a brief explainer about the situation along with the video.


The Facebook video has gotten more than 17 million views and has since been shared more than 350,000 times, with many people praising the courageous boy for speaking out against bullying.

Millie Bobby Brown, star of Stranger Things, chimed in.

Walker read Keaton some words of wisdom and then offered Keaton and his family 4 tickets to see the Titans play on New Years Eve. Keaton was sitting in the vehicle with his mom because he was afraid to go to lunch, and described how the other kids were bullying him.

University of Tennessee wide receiver Tyler Byrd tweeted that on Tuesday, the team is going to the middle school to "show young Man some love" and stand up to bullying.

Some of the biggest names in American sport have sent touching messages of support to a schoolboy whose heartbreaking reaction to being bullied has gone viral.
