Keaton Jones Finesse In Full Effect, GoFundMe Pages Suspended

Tennessee boy Keaton Jones took the internet by storm over the weekend with his emotional outpour about his bullying experience. Through tears, he recounted having milk poured on him and ham put down his clothes at lunch.

A video showing a tearful Keaton Jones trying to make sense of why he is bullied at his Tennessee middle school has garnered worldwide attention. They call me ugly. If you are made fun of just don't let it bother you.

As the video racked up millions of views, celebrities from Justin Bieber to Katy Perry offered their sympathies.

A GoFundMe was created to help Davis' family pay for her funeral and other expenses.

The heartbreaking video showed Keaton breaking down and expressing his struggle of being a victim to bullying.

"I want to inspire people that are bullied, to just give them a voice that they might not have", he said.

"The only two photos - the only two photos on my entire planet that I am anywhere near a Confederate flag". The Confederacy fought to preserve slavery in America during the Civil War.

On Monday, Horace Maynard Middle School (Maynardville, Union County, Tenn.) - which is the middle school Jones attends - commented on the situation.

"If you aren't bleeding, no bones are sticking out & you can breathe, STOP crying!" "For the love, some folks clearly never picked a switch".

Lakyn Jones, on Twitter, said the posts were not meant to be racist.

Jones' Facebook page has since been turned to private, but Jones answered questions about the photos on a "CBS This Morning" segment that aired Tuesday morning, calling the pictures "ironic" and "funny".

As a result of Keaton's story going viral, some have pointed out an image apparently uploaded on his mother's Facebook, showing a group of kids that includes Keaton in front of a Confederate flag. Lakyn is posing with a gun.

Activist Tareeq Nasheed also reacted in a post and called Kimberly a ' suspected racist. "Wouldn't that kinda make her a bully too?" tweeted actor Slink Johnson. We don't know what the young boy himself believes, but it's still important to point out that disagreeing with someone's beliefs doesn't justify bullying them. "Again", tweeted Danger & Eggs show runner Shadi Petosky.

When asked if there was any racist intent behind them, Jones remained firm.

The jury is still out on whether Kimberly Jones will clear her name or whether her son's story will be buried under the weight of the racism allegations.
