A middle-schooler from Tennessee’s heartbreaking video about the pain of being bullied is going viral on the internet — and Hollywood stars are expressing their support for him.
Last Friday, Keaton Jones’ mother posted a video of him tearfully talking about being kids in school making fun of him for his appearance — and even physically attacking him on a daily basis. It has now been viewed over 22 million times.
Hollywood celebrities like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Chris Evans have reached out to offer their support and friendship to Jones — and in some cases, even VIP invitations from stars like Fil-Am Hailee Steinfeld.
“Hey Keaton! It’s Hailee here. I just want to say I think you’re amazing. What makes you special is that there is only one you. And I would love for you, Keaton Jones, to be my date for the Pitch Perfect premiere on Tuesday and if you would like to go, DM me so we can start planning. I hope to see you there!”
Through a family friend, Keaton Jones told that media that he is thrilled by the support, and that it means a lot to him.
