There is no excuse for bullying. Period. Nevertheless, it still sadly happens every single day, therefore, once in a while, a video goes viral showing why bullying needs to stop. Today it’s a video of the bullied Tennessee student Keaton Jones. His mum shared a heartbreaking video of her son on Facebook, which has already been shared over 21 million times already. People from all over the world share their support with Keaton, including world-famous celebrities. They’re using their voice and reach to put an end to bullying and let’s hope it helps.
[UPDATE] Keaton’s story has gotten an unexpected side twist due to his mum’s racist comments. Either way, bullying is never ok.

“Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.” Stay strong Keaton, you’re a very brave young man and a lot of great folks have your back. @Lakyn_Jones if there is anything we can do for Keaton, please let us know. #StandWithKeaton #StopBullying

So I got the chance to spend the day with my new best bud Keaton. It was unbelievable to get to know him and realize that we have a lot in common. This dude is very special and has changed my life forever. Now I have the little brother I always wanted! God bless you my man pic.twitter.com/vMHVtnf2rC
