Young Boy Pleads for Bullies to Leave Him Alone

Young Boy Pleads for Bullies to Leave Him Alone

Keaton Jones is dealing with middle school bullies in East Tennessee and people across the nation have made it clear they have his back.

Keaton's questions about bullying clearly struck a chord with more than just his middle school community and his mom's friends on Facebook.

'My kids are by no stretch flawless, & at home, he's as all boy as they come, but by all accounts he's good at school.

After Walker saw Keaton's video, he decided to make a video of his own, which he posted to Twitter on Saturday.

He goes on to recount mocking and teasing from unnamed bullies at his Knoxville-area school, who he says pour milk on him and throw food at him. "It's hard.it'll probably get better one day". Dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of people shared Jones's post on Facebook, leading to more than 15 million views in the span of two days.

On Instagram, Snoop Dogg said Keaton had a "friend for life" in him ("hit me on dm so we can chop it up").

Since the video was posted, players from the Tennessee Volunteers, the Tennessee Titans and UFC President Dana White have all said they want to help cheer up Keaton, according to SB Nation.

Al-Hasnawi stepped in to stop two people who were "accosting" an older man near his mosque on Main St. One man - James Matheson, 20 - is in custody facing an accessory after the fact to murder charge.

Keaton's sister, who goes by @Lakyn_Jones on Twitter, has expressed the family's gratitude for the massive outpouring of support and let us know that Keaton is "doing good and loving the awareness [of] his video".

Shortly thereafter, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker posted a video of himself reading a quote by Guatama Buddha. "Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves", Walker said.

"Always remember that you can be whoever you want to be", Walker said.

Then he extended an invitation to Keaton and his family to join him at the December 31 Titans vs. Jaguars game.

But support for Keaton extended beyond just Tennessee.

Dozens of celebrities have also shown support. The video quickly went viral because Keaton's message resonated with so many people.
