Kirk Herbstreit invites bullying victim Keaton Jones to College GameDay

Kirk Herbstreit invites bullying victim Keaton Jones to College GameDay

They made fun of his nose, as well as the fact that he doesn't have friends. "They say I have no friends", was Keaton's tearful response. What's the point of it?

"Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?"

"People that are different don't need to be criticized", he said, adding that he isn't the only one the bullies pick on. "It's not their fault".

Since his mom made the video Friday, it has been viewed more than 21 million times and the hashtag #StandWithKeaton has been trending on Twitter since Sunday afternoon.

You may have seen the video of Keaton Jones which is circulating the internet at the moment.

Thousands of people, including many celebrities, wrote on social media that they, too, had been bullied and urged Keaton to stay strong.

One of the first athletes to reach out to Keaton was University of Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano. I asked what the GoFundMe account is for and she said, 'You know Christmas is coming up and I am a single mother and blah, blah, blah and money is tight.' Make your own judgment on that. In a short video, he read a poem attributed to Buddha and told Keaton, "You can be whoever you want to be".

Amazon's New Apple TV App May Have a Major Sound Issue
Amazon kicked the Chromecast, Google's television player, off its retail website in 2015, along with Apple Inc's TV player. Streaming devices allow users to stream videos from platform such as Netflix, YouTube , Hulu, and Amazon Prime on its TV.

Now Captain America's Chris Evans is the next on the list as he looked to cheer Keaton up by sending him words of advice via Twitter, along with a big surprise: an invitation for him and his mum to attend the Avengers: Infinity War premiere next week.

"So I got the chance to spend the day with my new best bud Keaton", Guarantano wrote.

'Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?

IBT India couldn't confirm the claims against her posts as Jones had shut down her Facebook account as of Monday evening.

'I've seen her posts and if true, I'd say there's potential for a great, teachable moment here. "We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere".

Jones revealed that he was once again being bullied by his schoolmates.

Mr Lam said the driving force behind the fundraising campaign was to help a child who had been the victim of bullying and raise awareness about the prevalence of the problem.
