This heartbreaking video of a young boy named Keaton Jones recently made the headlines with details of what his bullies have done to him. These shocked and saddened netizens on how bullying is a serious issue that has yet to be rectified. Since the video went viral, there were numerous support and encouragement from celebrities.
“I’ve been bullied most of my life. It really hit drastically in third grade and it’s been awful ever since then,” he said. “They call me mean, horrendous names, like all kinds of awful things. They say nobody likes me, they make fun of my nose, my scars, they’ve poured milk on me and poured ham down my clothes, thrown bread at me.”
Captain America’s Chris Evan had even invited him and his mum to the premiere of Avengers.
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
