Tennessee Boy’s Anti-Bullying Video Goes Viral. Athletes And Celebrities Show Support

A Knoxville, Tennessee middle schooler was being bullied so much that he was leaving school early and skipping lunch so that he did not have to face his tormentors.

His mother, Kimberly, took a video of Keaton talking about how other kids poured milk on him, put food on his clothes, and mocked him.

He had one simple question: Why?

“For the record, Keaton asked to do this AFTER he had he me pick him up AGAIN because he was afraid to go to lunch,” Kimberly wrote on Facebook. “My kids are by no stretch perfect, & at home, he’s as all boy as they come, but by all accounts he’s good at school. Talk to your kids. I’ve even had friends of mine tell me they’re kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people. We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere.”

The video has been viewed over 15 million times and it’s caught the attention of many celebrities.

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
