After a Tennessee mother posted a video of her teenage son detailing the bullying he experiences daily, entertainers began pouring out support via social media.
In the video, which is a major tear jerker, Keaton Jones said his peers call him names, make fun of him and even poured milk on him and threw bread at him.
“Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?” he asked with tears in his eyes. “People that are different don’t need to be criticized about it. It’s not their fault.”
This heartbreaking video, which has over 18 million views, has went viral and many celebs have showed him support. Cardi B was among the many who dedicated a post to Keaton.
“How you pick on somebody who can’t defend them self?” she wrote on her IG.
Chris Brown also showed love and condemned bullying.
Snoop Dogg offered to console Keaton and insisted he hit him up via DM.
T.I offered words of encouragement, urging Keaton to not allow his cowardly bullies to make him feel that he isn’t good enough.
Bullying is tearing children apart across the country. A 10-year-old girl in Aurora, CO recently hung herself after a fight with one of her bullies went viral. Parents, please talk to your kids and help them understand that words mean things and to use them carefully.
