Keaton Jones Breaks Everyone’s Hearts!

Keaton Jones Breaks Everyone’s Hearts!


Bullied Boy Is Now An Honorary Avenger!

Please excuse me as I wipe all the tears from my face!! Bullying hits home for me on so many levels. I was in a glass closet my whole life and the other children’s fear of flamboyancy caused them to be cruel to me during my youth. Some of the comments from my past still haunt me today, but now I laugh at them and can only move forward in my fantastic life. I wish I would have someone telling me that it gets better. It really does. Time heals all. In adulthood, no one is ever walking around bullying someone. As you mature, you learn to either ignore or keep your negative comments at your kitchen table.


Enter Keaton Jones. He’s a middle schooler who has been facing bullies. In a video that has now gone viral, Jones describes – through tears – that the other children at his school are harassing him and even assaulting him. He received ham down his shirt, food thrown at him, and milk poured all over him. Those children are god damn horrible!!!!!!

In Jones’ powerful video, accompanied by his mother, we see the incredible young man that he is transforming into. He tells even if you’re different, you can’t help it – why be mean to someone for being different. UGH! This gay writer is connecting with him on so many levels I have goosebumps and am getting hot! He tells the camera he isn’t giving up. We hear you and we love you, Keaton.


Not only has he gained support far and wide, including tickets to a sports event called The Cotton Bowl; Jones is now an honorary Avenger. Or, well, he’s got some superhero friends. Avengers very own Captain America, Chris Evans, reaches out to Jones via Twitter and invites him to the Avengers: Infinity War premiere next year. JEALOUS! On top of the invite to the film’s opening, Jones is receiving so much praise and sponsors; he’s going to be laughing at his bullies upon his return to school. Catch his tweet below:


 


Grab your tissues, girl! Check out Jones’ emotional, viral video below:

The poor kid doesn’t stand a chance with a shitty mother who would rather have money instead of support.

Keaton is one beautiful soul. I can definitely relate to him, because I was bullied endlessly all throughout middle school and high school. Somehow I survived, and I learned that being weird and different isn't such a bad thing after all. I just wish I could have been as wise and intelligent at that age. I hope he knows that there people in this world who do care about him.

This breaks my heart, I know what it is like to be bullied in school, it was terrible when I was young! I'm 54 years old and gay, and back in the 60's, 70's and early 80's school could be rough even if you weren't gay! Stay strong kiddo, it get's much better, and there are tons of us out there that love and support you! God bless you and make it through so you can see how wonderful this world can be! Love from St. Louis

This is such a heartbreaking video. I know what its like being bullied in school and I know what it’s like to have teachers turn a blind eye to it. This is completely unacceptable whoever is assaulting him needs to be expelled from the school in the very least. You’re brave young man and I know things will get better.

What a compassionate,common sense, but mostly  mature young man. Many wish to be this mature at his age. Be patient Keaton, those kids will grow up. You are a hero to many-Keep your head up!!!!
