Bullies are everywhere at school, on the internet, on television. One Tennessean boy named Keaton Jones, however, spoke out in a huge way and is gaining nothing but support from some of the biggest names in pop culture, according to PEOPLE.
Keaton Jones is shining a spotlight on school bullying. On Friday, Keaton sat in the car and opened up bullying in one of the most emotional videos of the year.
Keaton tearfully recounted some of the horrible ways he’s bullied at school. Kids make fun of his appearance. They ask why he has no friends. Honestly, it’s heartbreaking to see the devastating effects their words have on Keaton.

Keaton added, bullies ”put milk on me and put ham down my clothes, throw bread on me.”
”Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it?” Keaton asked. ”Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not okay.”
It’s hard to answer why people bully others, but a few of Keaton’s new friends have something to say about it. After his mother posted the video on Facebook, it went viral! Keaton’s emotional confession soon caught the attention of Hollywood’s biggest names.
”Keaton, this is so accurate,” replied Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown. ” Why do people do this. I think your soo cool Keaton! I wanna be your friend (but srsly) ur freaking awesome.”
With Eleven at his side, the bullies at Keaton’s school better back off. Brown isn’t the only super-powered celebrity to offer support for Keaton. Captain American reached out and offered Keaton a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
”Stay Strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better,” Avengers star, Chris Evans posted on Twitter. ”While those punks 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?”
Keaton hasn’t responded to the insane amount of support messages he has received, but his mother wrote on Facebook Saturday morning that she is completely overwhelmed by the support he has gotten, reports PEOPLE.
Personally, I would be a bit overwhelmed too if I had messages from the likes of Demi Levato, Jaimie Alexander, Bernice King, Ricky Martin, Katy Perry, and Haliee Steinfeld!
