“Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it?” he asked. “Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not okay.”
“They make fun of my nose. They call me ugly. They say I have no friends,” he said, through tears. He told his mother that the cruel bullies at his school poured milk on him, put ham in his clothes and threw bread at him.

He continued, “I don’t like that they do it to me. And I, for sure, don’t like that they do it to other people, cause it’s not okay!”
“People that are different don’t need to be criticized about it, because it’s not their fault!” he said.
After the video went viral, stars shared their support for Jones on social media and called for the end of bullying.

Keaton, bullies are just people who are scared to face realities in their own lives. Don’t let people bring you down. It’s hard at times but be strong & see it through. You seem like an awesome kid. Stay that way. Stay humble & treat others how you’d want to be #standwithkeaton https://t.co/Q4HprTpGzv

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 LA next year? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi
