Celebrities come out in help of bullied Tennessee boy

Celebrities come out in help of bullied Tennessee boy

Celebrities have, once again, proven how great they are by offering support to a bullied boy.

But the video, which was viewed more than 22 million times, began to receive backlash after the boy's mom allegedly started a separate GoFundMe that slammed the initial fundraiser, according to BuzzFeed.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway joined the chorus of support for Tennessee middle-schooler Keaton Jones, whose emotional reaction to being bullied has gone viral. If anyone knows how i can reach the family please let me know. Classmates, he told his mother, had poured milk on him and stuffed ham in his clothes. Principal Clay says that particular incident - which was described by Keaton with tears in his eyes - was resolved "weeks ago", and he wasn't aware of repeated bullying of Keaton.

On the video, which she said was recorded at his request, Keaton made a gut-wrenching plea to viewers.

In the clip, Keaton asks his mother: "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?".

His mother Kimberly posted the video shortly after picking up Keaton from school because he was too afraid and upset to go to lunch. In September, she spoke out against bullying at a luncheon at the USA mission to the United Nations, encouraging parents to "come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined".

A young Tennessee schoolboy is being encouraged, invited to Avengers premiere, and sent love to by big names like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Chris Evans and Indian celebrities like Tiger Shroff and Parvathy.

"Keaton didn't get to choose the family that raised & shaped him, you smug ghoul", tweeted Patton Oswalt after a Twitter follower asked him whether he would withdraw support after the allegations of racism. "Stranger Things" actress Millie Bobby Brown, who is 13, tweeted, "I wanna be your friend". I want to bring Keaton to Vegas and hang out at UFC Headquarters.

'We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere, ' she wrote.

Mr Lam said the driving force behind the fundraising campaign was to help a child who had been the victim of bullying and raise awareness about the prevalence of the problem.
