A schoolboy whose emotional video pleading for bullies to leave him alone went viral has been inundated with support from celebrities including the UFC President Dana White and many of the fighters and champs in the UFC like Daniel Cormier, Stipe Miocic and many many more.

Keaton Jones, a middle school student from Tennessee, poured his heart out in his mother’s car after calling her to pick him up because he was afraid to go to lunch and face his tormentors.

“Why do they bully? What’s the point of it?” a tearful Keaton asks in the clip. “Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not ok.”

He recounts how lunchroom bullies call him names, throw food at him and once even poured milk over him.

“They make fun of my nose. They call me ugly. They say I have no friends,” he says, adding that he is not the only one to fall victim to bullying.

“If you are made fun of, just don’t let it bother you. Just stay strong, I guess,” he says, crying. “It’s hard. But it’ll probably get better one day.”

Keaton’s mother, Kimberly Jones, uploaded the clip on Facebook on Friday to raise awareness of the emotional impact of bullying.

The video garnered first hundreds and then thousands of likes and shares. By Sunday, her post had more than 18 million views.

Dana White thanked everyone for the great response to his post.

In fact the UFC used thir own twitter account to get the champs to post messages of support for him.

 

And the US President Donald Trump was also moved by the video and Dana’s message and offered to give Keaton a tour of the White House.

Bullying is a worldwide phenomena and it’s great to see Dana White,the UFC, Combat Sport world and many celebrities give their voice in support of this young boy and in doing so make all bullied kids feel supported in a much stronger way.

The kids who bullied Keaton must be shaking in their shoes right now.

And Boss Logic made his day by dedicating a poster to him.
