We are all aware about the bullying problem, and still it keeps going on. Kids suffer abuse and it usually happens in school, where they should be most protected. Unfortunately, the consequences for bullied kids are devastating, and entire society should take a part in order to stop this once and for all.
Keaton Jones is a Knoxville, Tennessee middle schooler and he was bullied by his classmates because of his appearance. He was even leaving school early and skipping lunch so that he did not have to face his tormentors. One day, other kids poured milk on him, put food on his clothes, and mocked him. That is when his mother, Kimberly, decided to take this video.
She asked him to explain how this makes him feel and his answer is heartbreaking.
“Why do they bully? What’s the point of it? Why are they taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not ok. It’s not ok. People are different, it’s not their fault. If you are made fun of, just don’t let it bother you.”
Mom shared this video online and got the enormous response. It even caught the attention of many celebrities.
