Mom's motives questioned after bullied boy's video goes viral

Mom's motives questioned after bullied boy's video goes viral

The school pupil's mother, Kimberly Jones, is alleged to have made a slew of racist comments on her Facebook page and has posted photos of the confederate flag, but celebrities are still standing by their invitations for Keaton. "When I got the call telling me that my daughter had been in a fight, they never gave me the opportunity to meet with the other parents to come to the bottom of the line". Now people across the country are showing their support for Keaton.

Norfolk teenager Chloe Payne said she thinks the campaign is a good idea.

Not addressed in the interview with Kimberly: Multiple GoFundMe accounts that have sprung up appearing to exploit the public's sympathy for Keaton's plight.

"I don't like that they do it to me and I for sure don't like that they do it to other people, 'cause it's not OK", Jones says, tears running down his face.

"I think that's fantastic because it just unites people".

"It's not okay to take someone that don't do anything to you and make them feel like they don't belong on earth, honestly", Keaton said.

The man who created the page, which has raised more than $56,000 but TMZ reports the crowdfunding site is trying to get in touch with Keaton's mom to confirm her family would be the ones receiving the money. "But his mom, Kimberly on the other hand, is a suspected racist who makes very problematic posts bullying Black protesters #TheIrony".

Copies of the video have been shared on Facebook and Twitter, and viewed tens of millions of times.

"It was ironic. It was amusing", Kimberly Jones told CBS. She also responded to allegations on social media that her brother used the "N word", saying he does not and "we don't condone that behavior".

"It didn't have anything to do with racist intent?" a CBS News reporter asked.

Lakyn Jones tweeted that @kimberlyjones_38 was not her mother's account, and said, "She has a private Instagram and hasn't talked to anyone. Something that could actually change the world", he said.

Keaton Jones' video revealing his torment from being bullied at school went viral over the weekend.

Many have now turned on Keaton's mum for exposing the innocent boy to bullying online.

Keaton says he knows speaking up is hard and that some victims of bullying don't talk about it because it's scary.

"That viral video of #KeatonJones talking about being bullied is heartbreaking, and I feel sympathetic towards that child", tweeted media personality Tariq Nasheed. Jones said Keaton wouldn't be returning to classes until after holiday break in January.
