Celebrities come out in help of bullied Tennessee boy

A Tennesee boy describing the bullying he goes through each day has gone viral and as many celebrities have given him their support the conversation has quickly turned to his mother's Confederate ties. What's the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to 'em?

Bullying is defined by the federal government on the Stop Bullying website as "An aggressive or unwanted behavior used again and again, to isolate, harm or control another person". "I know several of you have sent me groups or pages or individuals that you feel I really need to read [and] reply to, when I say even those are at least 100s, [and] I've gotten thousands besides those, it's insane".

Snoop Dogg also shared the video with the caption "Say Lil Man U gotta friend in me for life hit me on dm so we can chop it up love is the only way to beat hate". They call me ugly. "It's not their fault, but if you are made fun of just don't let it bother you". "They put ham down my clothes, threw bread at me", he said. "Stay strong, I guess".

"I can't tell you what was done", he added, "but I can tell you action was taken with the children".

Ironically, the first lady's visit was in support of a "No One Eats Alone Day" event, which encouraged students not to leave anyone out at lunchtime by finding new friends to eat lunch with - a campaign created to help prevent bullying. "They say I have no friends", Keaton tells his mom in the auto, adding that they even "put milk on me and put ham down my clothes, throw bread on me".

An Instagram account said to be belonging to Keaton Jones, issued an apology on behalf of his mother, for the things she said about other races.

Ruffalo and Seinfeld invited Keaton to their upcoming movie premieres. "I think it's important that we choose kindness and compassion".

Country music star Kelsea Ballerini promised Keaton to visit him in the lunchroom when she visits her hometown of Knoxville.

Much ink has been spilled about bullying in the internet age, but Keaton's video underscored that the old-fashioned variety - the cafeteria taunts, the physical violence - is still very much alive.
