Bullied Teen Keaton Jones' GoFundMe Page Halted Amid Mom Kimberly Jones' Backlash

Bullied Teen Keaton Jones' GoFundMe Page Halted Amid Mom Kimberly Jones' Backlash”

The heartwarming story of a bullied East Tennessee boy who received support from around the world grew more complicated Monday as fake social media accounts solicited donations and some internet users leveled accusations of racism against the boy's mother.

Jones revealed that he was once again being bullied by his schoolmates.

The outpouring support for a Tennessee boy who went viral tearfully talking about bullies is starting to taper off as questions are raised about his mother's financial motives and racist posts. "They say I have no friends", Keaton tells his mom in the vehicle, adding that they even "put milk on me and put ham down my clothes, throw bread on me".

Keaton was going home early - not for the first time, Kimberly Jones said - because he was afraid to have lunch at school. Kimberly defended her decision to share the video and said that it was her son who asked him to do it. "@danawhite, If he takes you up on your offer to see UFC Headquarters, I would be honored to host him and his family at our place if they need somewhere to stay", Trump Jr. tweeted.

He continued, "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?".

"When a stranger starts a campaign and does not have a direct connection to the individual they're raising money for, funds are collected by our payment processors, held, and then only released only to the person named as the beneficiary". That's why they want the school system to step up and change how kids interact with one another. Even Captain America himself, Chris Evans, tweeted the teen to invite him and his mother to the premier of the latest Avengers movie.

On Instagram, Justin Bieber told Keaton: "You got a friend in me Lil bro!"

'We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere, ' she wrote.

Delanie Walker, a tight end for the Tennessee Titans, offered Keaton and his family tickets to the team's New Year's Eve game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The intention was to help out a victim of bullying, but some say they are feeling hustled.
