After Anti-Bullying Video Goes Viral, Keaton Jones’ Mom Is Outed as a Racist
Well, if this isn’t the most 2017 thing to happen yet. Keaton Jones went viral for a heartbreaking video about being bullied at school. It really is the saddest goddamn thing, and our hearts break for him. Celebs and athletes rallied around Keaton, offering support, kind words, and some pretty amazing opportunities. But now, in an ironic turn of events, internet sleuths have uncovered some racist shit on the social media accounts of Keaton Jones’ mom, Kimberly.
Nice things, we don’t deserve them.
Keaton Jones’ mom Kimberly recorded and posted the video of her son. But maybe, JUST MAYBE, she should have wiped her social media accounts first. This is the internet, Kimberly. We find shit out on here.
That viral video of #KeatonJones talking about being bullied is heartbreaking, and I feel sympathetic towards that child.
But his mom, Kimberly on the other hand, is a suspected racist who makes very problematic posts bullying Black protesters #TheIrony pic.twitter.com/NUhidunP8z

It shouldn’t be surprising that people found this stuff. It was all over her social media, before she locked them down. But the irony of a racist sharing a video about her son being bullied is … almost too much.
Kimberly’s accounts had posts about protesting athletes and Confederate flags, and not in the way you’d hope. Nope, she was all about that flag! Posed next to it and posted a picture of a kid holding it. Peak 2017, right here.
