Victoria Beckham, Justin Bieber & More Step Up to Support Bullying Victim Keaton Jones
A Knoxville, Tennessee, middle schooler named Keaton Jones received a wave of support from celebrities this weekend after he tearfully opened up about being bullied.
It all started when the boy’s mom shared a one-minute video of her son emotionally describing bullying he has experienced and questioning why people treat one another unkindly in the first place. The heart-wrenching clip has garnered more than 22 million views on Facebook, and everyone from Victoria Beckham to Millie Bobby Brown has stepped up to show their support for Jones.
Here, seven celebs who spread the love on social media.
Keaton, you have inspired me and many others to now recognize the bravery and courage to speak up. Your video was heartbreaking and yet so true. You really are a superhero and you are inspiring people who are getting bullied to speak up. We will all stand up for you. You're really amazing. Thank you. #endbullying
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?
