JR Smith, Stipe Miocic among celebrities offering support to Keaton Jones

Keaton Jones Facebook bullying in Confederate flag

Eleven-year-old Keaton Jones became an internet sensation this week after Jones posted a video on Facebook showing Keaton's sobbing as he described how he was bullied by classmates, who poured milk over his head, stuffed ham in his clothes and threw bread at him.

What were the celebrity responses and messages of support?

Still, Jones offered advice to victims of bullying and how they can handle it. Kelsea Ballerini, a country singer and Knoxville native, declared that the next time she was in town, she would "walk into that lunchroom with you and watch the bullies say they are sorry to you". Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Gal Gadot were also on hand to send their sympathies.

Jones said the photos did not have any racist intent behind them. "I mean, people that know us, know us".

The principal of Horace Maynard Middle School responded to Keaton Jones' video.

Her son told CBS that it was his idea to make the video, and his mother said she wasn't sure what to think prior to posting it. "Sad", a visibly upset Schilling adds.

Yet another controversy erupted when MMA fighter Joe Schilling claimed in a video that he had reached out to Keaton's mom on Instagram with an offer of friendship, but that she had rebuffed him and asked him to share the GoFundMe page.

The GoFundMe page for Keaton, started by a man named Joseph Lam, was paused amid criticism of the mother. He said he did not know the Joneses when he set it up, but that he had passed thousands of dollars on to Kimberly Jones when the page took off. "It's looking like it's a fake Instagram account therefore those comments are fake".

Kiss' Gene Simmons Accused of Sexual Battery in Lawsuit
The interview was part of a promotion of Gene Simmons's expansion of the restaurant Rock & Brews in which he has co-ownership. The gesture was followed by suggestive remarks from Simmons , who later touched the woman's buttocks, the lawsuit stated.

"I've spent most of my life being bullied and judged because I wasn't racist". In fact, following this news, one of her GoFundMe pages was shut down altogether, while the other is on hold with almost $60,000 unspoken for in it according to TMZ.

The owner of that account reportedly does not know Kimberly. Lakyn, who has a large Twitter following numbering over 47,700, tweeted: "The Instagram KimberlyJones_38 is NOT my mom".

On Twitter she said: "We haven't received any money and don't plan on it. The GoFundMe's aren't by any of us". It was all over her social media, before she locked them down. "Did y'all know that my son Keaton was spit on in school, picked on by teachers, that supposed to be there for him???" Posed next to it and posted a picture of a kid holding it. However, the rumors have not been confirmed.

Keaton also has a pal in Snoop Dogg.

"Look, there is a lot of stuff going on".

"We've talked to him in the past about bullying".

In his video, through his tears, Keaton told viewers: "If you are made fun of, just don't let it bother you. They are legit", he wrote.
