Celebrities reach out, extend VIP invites to bullied boy Keaton Jones

The video has garnered more than 330,000 shares on Facebook even reaching the eyes and ears of several celebrities who have tweeted their support for young Keaton including Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown

In the video, Kimberly Jones asks her son, Keaton Jones, why bullies at school were bothering him, observes the Daily Mail. I've even had friends of mine tell me kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people.

It has been viewed (at the time of writing) over 22 million times and has inspired an outpouring of support and inspirational messages for Keaton.

A young Tennessee schoolboy is being encouraged, invited to Avengers premiere, and sent love to by big names like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Chris Evans and Indian celebrities like Tiger Shroff and Parvathy.

Keaton, a sixth-grader at Horace Maynard Middle School in Maynardville in Union County, sparked a national conversation about bullying after a video of him went viral over the weekend. He described having milk poured on him, ham stuck down his trousers and bullies making fun of his nose. "It's hard. It'll probably get better one day", he says.

Celebrities in sports and Hollywood voiced their support for Jones on social media, with many like Fox News host Sean Hannity and President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., offering to help him and his family out.

Jones revealed that he was once again being bullied by his schoolmates. Why do people do this?

Google noted that Android has grown to more than 2 billion active devices around the world, with more users in India than the US. Android Oreo is the first version to get the "Go" treatment for seamless Android experience on devices with less than 1GB RAM.

Brown then tweeted at Keaton's sister, Lakyn Jones. Truly a great person... to all the bully's: take not from Keaton'.

Now he's been invited to National Football League games and to the red carpet on movie premieres, Keaton's going to be the coolest kid in school. This video is heartbreaking!

"As many of you know I paused the donations as well as the comments". "And, um, she just wants money, she just want me to share her GofundMe account". Thank u everyone, ' White wrote.

Tennessee wide receiver Tyler Byrd said he's going to go eat lunch with Keaton at school this coming week.

One of the first to respond to the video was the Tennessee Titans' Delanie Walker, who reached out to Jones and his mother on Twitter Saturday with words of encouragement and an offer of tickets to a Titans game. In some well-publicized cases in recent years, bullying has been so vicious that victims have killed themselves. "He is unbelievable. I hope those who bullied him get what's coming to them".
