Celebrities Send Messages Of Support To Bullied Tennessee Student

"They say I have no friends", Keaton explains, tears streaming down his cheeks.

After a Tennessee mother posted a video of her teenage son detailing the bullying her experiences daily, entertainers began pouring out support via social media.

In the video posted to Facebook and Twitter, Keaton Jones tearfully describes the abuse he receives from classmates and pleads for it to stop, while also providing encouragement for other kids who might be enduring similar treatment. We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere.

Cardi B, on the other hand, wanted to deliver fades to anyone who is bullying Jones.

"Bless your heart! It makes me both sad and angry that those kids are picking on you". As of Sunday afternoon, the video has accumulated more than 17.5 million views, and has hundreds of thousands of shares, comments and reactions.

Even Millie Bobby Brown - Eleven on Stranger Things - chimed in (and we're including her here because eating all the waffles, fighting Demogorgans and lifting stuff with your brain all qualify as sports).




"You got a pal in the Hulk", tweeted Mark Ruffalo, while Chris Evans has just invited Keaton to next year's Los Angeles premiere of Avengers: Infinity War.

More than 12 million people have seen that video now, including National Football League tight end Delanie Walker, who plays for the Tennessee Titans.

Several notable hip-hop and R&B artists have come to the aid of a young teen who is being bullied at his school.

"Always remember that you can be whoever you want to be", Walker said.

Tennesse Titans tight end Delanie Walker read him a poem from Buddha - and invited Keaton and his family to the December 31 game in Nashville against Jacksonville.

Some of the biggest names in American sport have sent touching messages of support to a schoolboy whose heartbreaking reaction to being bullied has gone viral.
