On Friday, a Tennessee woman named Kimberly Jones picked up her son Keaton from middle school, because he was being bullied so bad that he was afraid to go to lunch.
Keaton cried as he asked her, quote, "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?" And he told her that at lunch, the bullies would pour milk on him, and call him ugly . . . apparently because he has scars on his head from a tumor operation.
In just three days, it surpassed 20 MILLION views . . . and a TON of celebrities are sending love Keaton's way.
Chris Evans Tweeted, quote, "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 L.A. next year?"
Hailee Steinfeld posted a video saying, quote, "Hey Keaton, I just wanted to say I think you are amazing, [and] I'd love for you to be my date to the 'Pitch Perfect 3' premiere on Tuesday."
Others who have sent Keaton some love include: Ryan Seacrest, Mark Ruffalo, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Jonas, rapper Cardi B, country singer Kelsea Ballerini, Idina Menzel, Snoop Dogg, Eva Longoria, Katy Perry, Ricky Martin, Chris Brown, Orlando Bloom, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Justin Bieber, Nickelback, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, and Maddie Ziegler. Plus, a bunch folks he may not know, like Dr. Phil, Tom Arnold, Ed Asner, Billy Baldwin, Patricia Arquette, Carnie Wilson, Sean Hannity, and Dana White.
I feel it goes without saying, but bullying is wrong, and it's shocking that in 2017 we still have kids and even adults that have to deal with this on a regular basis. If you or someone you know is being bullied just know, you are not alone, it is not OK, and plenty of people in the world think you are amazing, just the way you are!
