Bullied Teen Keaton Jones' GoFundMe Paused Amid Family Backlash – E! Online
A GoFundMe campaign for Keaton Jones has been put on pause.
Over the weekend, a video of Keaton talking about being bullied at school went viral after being shared on Facebook by his mom Kimberly Jones. In response, stars like Chris Evans, Millie Bobby Brown, Hailee Steinfeld, Snoop Dogg and many more celebs have sent their social media support to Keaton.
After the video went viral, a campaign page was started by Joseph Lam for the bullied teen.
“I came across this video on facebook of Kim Jones and her son Keaton,” a description for the campaign page read. “Keaton is being bullied at school. This video really touched my heart. I decided to do this GoFund Me to help with this childs future.”
Stay strong, Keaton. Don?t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi

The message continued, “I know that money may not be the answer for this problem that we are facing in our communities with bullying. One of my biggest fears as a parent is that my children will be bullied in school. I know its a big task to tackle but it starts inside of our walls and the values that we teach our children. This is just one case of thousands out there. How many of our children stay in silence out of fear for their safety or for the fear of being further unaccepted. Over 3.2 million kids are bullied
