Since the outpouring of support, Jones' mother shared her own message on Saturday, December 10, writing, "Friends, overwhelmed is the understatement of the world right now".
Keaton Jones, from Knoxville, Tennessee, was filmed by mum Kimberly after she came to pick up the distressed lad from school. "Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?" 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. Talk to your kids. I've even had friends of mine tell me their kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people.
"We all know how it feels to want to belong", Jones said in her post, "but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere".
"Just out of curiosity", Keaton begins, "why do they bully?" WBIR reports that they're still working on determining which school might be at the center of this video.
Walker said that he hoped to raise awareness to bullying in schools.
At this point, tears are rolling down Keaton's cheeks and he is heaving with sobs. More than 360,000 shares and 125,000 comments later, it appears that millions have been touched by Keaton's story. Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White said he wanted to bring Keaton to Las Vegas to hang out at UFC headquarters.
