Keaton Jones is probably smiling from ear to ear today, and for good reason. After the Tennessee middle-schooler’s mom posted a video of Keaton online, after being bullied by classmates, people from across the world are reaching out with messages of love & support.
Here’s a clip of the original video, which Keaton’s mom posted online.
Since being posted, Keaton’s story has gone viral, with people across the world sharing their own stories of being bullied, and with others sending love & support.
Some of our favourite country stars have spoken out, to let Keaton know bullying is wrong and should not be tolerated.
Stay strong Keaton. Takes a lot of courage to send such an honest message like this to the world. For anyone being bullied out there, it WILL get better. Until then, there are two 6 foot 4 inch brothers that have your back. https://t.co/Ye25jyYymJ— Brothers Osborne (@brothersosborne) December 11, 2017
