Not only does this poor kid get bullied his Mom is also total trash…
While this shouldn’t change attitudes towards what her son has had to face at school, there appears to be sufficient evidence to believe Keaton Jones’ mother is a terrible individual.
The video of a bullied Keaton Jones went viral recently after his mother posted it on social media. In the video, a tearful Jones recounts how the kids at his school pick on him.
“They made fun of my nose, the called me ugly, they say I have no friends,” Keaton says in the video.
“If you are made fun of, just don’t let it bother you. Stay strong, I guess. It’s hard, but it will probably get better one day.”
The video struck a chord with many celebrities, including Dana White. The UFC President reached out to Keaton and offered him a tour of UFC headquarters.
If you have the stomach for it, here is the young boy’s video:
Allegations of Fraudulent Fundraising by the Mother
Bellator kickboxer, Joe Schilling, was also moved by the video. So much so that he reached out to the family to offer them a trip to L.A. Unfortunately, the response Schilling got from Keaton’s mother was not pleasant.
According to a video posted by Schilling, Keaton’s mother turned down the trip to L.A and asked for straight cash instead. At this point, Schilling became understandably skeptical regarding how his donation would be used.
Things got even weirder from there, however. Old Facebook photos showing the family waiving Confederate flags were found and the multiple GoFundMe accounts created to support Keaton were frozen.
Check out some of the social media posts believed to be from Keaton’s mother in the video below:
The Jones Family Responds to Racism Allegations
Kimberly Jones responded to media by saying she did post the photos in question but that she is not racist. Instead, she contends the photos were meant to be “ironic” and “extreme”.
Unfortunately, growing up without a strong parental force in his life will only make things more difficult for young Keaton. While the GoFundMe accounts have been suspended as the mother is investigated for potentially fraudulent use of the service, it doesn’t change that Keaton has been given a rough go in life and could still benefit from having the support of celebrities like Dana White and Joe Schilling. This becomes more difficult, however, when the Mom is accused of taking advantage of her son’s situation.
Many MMA fighters, such as Georges St. Pierre, have said they were motivated to learn martial arts because they were bullied at a young age.
