You have probably seen the video of a crying kid, talking about him being bullied. I have seen it and I felt heartbroken, just as you are (if you aren’t, you wouldn’t be here). The kid’s name is Keaton Jones and he is a middle school student living in Tennessee. Jones came into media attention a video of him crying about being bullied was uploaded by his mother. Jones was born in 2006 and he studies in Maynard Middle School, Maynardville. Keaton was born with a tumor.
Before Fame: Keaton is just a regular middle school kid, but what’s extraordinary about him is he that he is a hero, at least in my eyes.
Keaton Jones’ Family/ Relationships
Keaton’s mother’s name is Kimberly Jones. He lives in Knoxville, Tennessee with his mum. He also has two sisters.
Bullying and Reactions
In the video, his mother had just picked him from school and the kid was too afraid to go to lunch. Why? Because other kids at the school called him ugly, made fun of his nose, spilled milk over him and told him he had no friends. I mean, why? I am baffled – look, I know kids can be mean but why? I can’t wrap this around in my head. And this is what Jones says in the video too, sobbing, “Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?” Keaton said. “What’s the point of it? Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and find a way to be mean to them?”
He goes on to say, “It’s not OK. People that are different don’t need to be criticized about it. It’s not their fault. If you are made fun of, just don’t let it bother you.” And this makes him a hero in front of my eyes. He is a hero, unlike those bullies trying to act all macho picking on other kids. I’ve got a lot to say about this but so do many other celebrities, such as Mark Ruffalo, Millie Bobby Brown, Snoop Dogg, Justin Beiber and even Chris Brown (yes I said even because “ri-ri”, you know).

Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. 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? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi
