Who Is Keaton Jones? The Story About Bullying You Need To Know

More on that later.

"Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?" he says. Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and find a way to be mean to them?

In an exclusive interview with TheWrap, Joseph Lam, a 37-year-old resident of New Jersey, explained that he has never met the Jones family and started the GoFundMe pages because he was touched by the viral video. "Everybody saw the video and it was frightful", he said.

"KEATON: ".They made fun of my nose. They call me mean, horrendous names, like all kinds of very bad things. "They called me ugly they say I have no friends".

Keaton replied: 'Poured milk on me and put ham down my clothes.

KEATON: "I don't like that they do it to me and I for sure don't like that they do it to other people because it's not ok". That awareness earned him props from Justin Bieber.

The video had millions of views as Americans united against bullying this weekend.

KEATON: "Yep, (they) say it to other kids too". In the video I saw a kid crying not just for himself but for others. "You all can hate and tweet all you want but our faith cant be shaken", she wrote on Twitter.

"People who are different don't need to be criticized about it".

Keaton Jones, you are not alone.

Pro athletes from Tennessee teams chimed in, including Chandler Parsons of the Memphis Grizzlies and Delanie Walker of the Tennessee Titans, the latter of whom read Keaton a poem by Buddha in a video inviting the boy and his family to a December 31 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bullies are straight up wack, corny, cowards, chumps, etc, etc! "Keaton keep your head up buddy and push forward!"

According to The Guardian, in the caption to the original Facebook post (which appears to have since been deleted), Keaton's mother Kimberley wrote that he had requested she take the video "after he had me pick him up again because he was afraid to go to lunch".

The comments from high-profile folks came in droves. A GoFundMe site set up to "to help with this childs future" and fundraise for Keaton has already raised more than $58,000.

One said: "The mother of #KeatonJones has dramatically increased the amount of bullying her son will receive within the coming days".

'Keaton, this is so accurate. Why do people do this?

"So I got the chance to spend the day with my new best bud Keaton", Guarantano said via Twitter. "She is just a strong southern woman".

After Davis' death, her father opened up about bullying, saying, "We have to stop it and we have to stop it within our kids".

"This whole #StandWithKeaton movement is so beyond heartwarming!"

"Keaton, the bullies won't win". I can assure you of that.

Social media users Monday blamed racism and questioned as to why Ashawnty Davis' bullying story did not garner as much attention as Keaton Jones. "I can't tell you what was done, but I can tell you action was taken with the children". This behavior is simply unacceptable. "It's not OK", added a tearful Keaton, sitting in a vehicle with his seatbelt on. If you are made fun of just don't let it bother you. They suck, I guess.

"Well I'm inviting Keaton to the Golden Globes and making him sit with the cast of Get Out, '" Eichner tweeted.
