Keaton Jones’ Estranged Father Is a Jailed White Supremacist
As if the controversy surrounding Keaton Jones couldn’t get any worse, TMZ found his father on Facebook. Turns out that not only is his mother a racist, but Keaton Jones’ dad, Shawn White, is a white supremacist. What’s more, White is currently serving time in a Tennessee jail.
The photos on Facebook belonging to Keaton Jones’ dad add another layer to this already disturbing story.
Shawn White is pictured on the right. He’s covered in tattoos, some of which read “Pure Breed” and “White Power”.
If you happen to have been living under a rock for the past few days – which is understandable, 2017 has been a rough year – Keaton Jones went viral. The middle schooler made waves after he was featured in a video talking about being bullied at school. The video is heart-wrenching as it’s clear that the young boy is in pain. Many celebrities quickly reached out with support for Jones’ bravery in speaking out against bullies.
But then the shit hit the fan! Turns out, his mother, Kimberly Jones, who posted the video, is a racist who had posts on her own social media accounts bullying others. So, is it surprising that TMZ revealed that Jones’ father is also a racist bully? With the way things are going, nope, not at all.
If you look at Shawn White’s Facebook page, you’ll be greeted by a collection of horrible memes, like the Aryan nation one pictured above. Many sporting sayings, like, “HOLY FUCK I LOVE BEING WHITE,” “Keep Calm and be White Pride,” and “Aryan Pride.”
Kimberly tried to downplay her photo standing next to a confederate flag, as ironic and funny, it’s hard to downplay tattoos. You can’t say you had White Pride tattooed on your belly ironically.
White is currently serving time after he violated his probation after an aggravated assault conviction back in 2012. He is scheduled to be released in 2018.
It is difficult to say what kind of relationship White has with his son. The last post on his social media that included Keaton was from 2015, and Keaton does use his mother’s last name.
