Bullied Kid Invited To Watch Tennessee Titans After Video Goes Viral

Keaton Jones, from Knoxville, Tennessee, was filmed by mum Kimberly after she came to pick up the distressed lad from school.

It's also spurred a massive outreach effort from athletes and celebrities, many of whom reached out or showed their support for Keaton.

If you haven't been near a computer screen today, Keaton is the middle schooler whose tearful question - "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?" - just might become a rallying cry of the anti-bullying movement.

Fox News host Sean Hannity also saw the video and tweeted that if someone provides him with the name of the school, principal, and school board members, "I will gladly make the calls myself and fix this".

"Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?" he asked with tears in his eyes.

"[They] poured milk on me and put ham down my clothes". Some people are different, they don't need to be criticised about it.

"We all know how it feels to want to belong", Jones said in her post, "but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere". It came as response to a tweet from former Vol basketball player, Skyler McBee, where he said "I would love to see some UT players come go to lunch with him I bet he wouldn't be bullied then @D1fuzzymuffin17 @smithtrey98 @BroadwayJay2 @CoachJPruitt @JKShuttlesworth @ToddKellyJr". The Knox County School District said he "is now not enrolled as a Knox County Schools student". "But if you are made fun of, don't let it bother you".

At the end of the video, which is not even 90 seconds, Keaton shared a message that has been resonating with people around the world.

Several actors tried to track down Keaton after they watched the video, including Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things and Mark Hamill.

On Instagram, Snoop Dogg said Keaton had a "friend for life" in him ("hit me on dm so we can chop it up").
