Keaton Jones mom slammed after anti-bullying video goes viral

Racism Allegations And Fake Fundraisers The Viral Story Of Keaton Jones Has Become A Mess

It's just one more freakish twist to a story that grabbed swift national attention over the weekend after Keaton's mother posted a video showing him crying about being bullied at his school outside of Knoxville, Tenn.

Keaton's video drew messages of support from politicians, celebrities, and sports stars across the country. Captain America Chris Evans tweeted, "Stay strong Keaton" and invited his family to attend the Avengers premiere next year.

The mom of Keaton Jones, whose heartbreaking video about bullying flooded social media over the weekend, responded to backlash over her Confederate flag photos saying they're "funny".

Earlier this week, one of Kimberly's old Facebook posts surfaced, wherein she verbally attacks black activists and other "butt hurt Americans" offended by the Confederate flag. "It was ironic. It was amusing", Jones said. "It was to raise awareness to bullying", Keaton told GMA. He also posted photos of himself sans shirt showing off his "PURE BREED" chest tattoo with a "WHITE PRIDE" inking garnishing his stomach.

In multiple photos, White and friends hold up a hand sign connected the Aryan Circle, one of the largest white nationalist gangs in US prisons, reported the Daily Mail. The man who created the page, which has raised more than $56,000 but TMZ reports the crowdfunding site is trying to get in touch with Keaton's mom to confirm her family would be the ones receiving the money. Kimberly Jones, someone who publicly ranted against Black Lives Matter, doesn't seem to understand what irony is. He was picked up again in October 2013 for aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, driving with a suspended license and evading arrest.

Keaton Jones mom slammed after anti-bullying video goes viral

The estranged father of bullied Tennessee student Keaton Jones has a social media presence that's brimming with white supremacist memes and messages, according to TMZ.

Kimberly Jones came under fire when posts discovered on her Facebook led critics to accuse her of racism. Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to 'em?

In an interview with CBS This Morning on Tuesday, Kimberly Jones said the Confederate flag photos were taken out of context and were meant to be "a joke". "And I'm trying to think that I was trying not to get caught up in the positives". He said in an update on the page that he doesn't "know the family personally and never claimed to have known them".

"I don't like that they do it to me, and I for sure don't like that they do it to other people because it's not okay", Jones said. She said she approved one GoFundMe campaign, but cautioned that any others were fake.
