JLo And Eva Langoria Are Furious And Speak Up For Keaton Jones On Their Instagram Accounts
With the fact that one in four students in the United States has experienced being bullied in school at least once, it is a subject we can no longer sweep under the carpet.
That explains why finding solutions to bullying in our schools have become a major concern to several individuals and organizations around the country today.
Keaton Jones’s story
Kimberly Jones, shared a video of her son on her Facebook page shortly after she had picked him up from school because he was too afraid to go for lunch. With tears in his eyes as he tried to explain, Keaton asked:
Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it?
@Lakyn_Jones Keaton, this is so accurate. Why do people do this? I think your sooo cool Keaton! I wanna be your friend ( but srsly) ur freakin awesome ❤️

Apparently, the lad couldn't bring himself to come to terms with why people do this. According to him, they had poured milk on him at lunch, made fun of his nose, called him ugly and all manner of unpleasant names.
And the fact that seemed to single him out of the class to be mean to him made him feel really bad.
Celebs’ reactions to Keaton’s story
Following the appearance of Keaton’s story online, several people have taken the opportunity to air their views on this act that is fast becoming a norm in our school.
And most touching is the fact that the celebrities aren't left out in this anti-bullying movement at all.
Eva Longoria responded with a message on Twitter. Sharing his video, she added a cute message saying:
I love this boy and I’ve never met him. You are brave and beautiful just as you are, don’t ever let others define who you are. Bullies are insecure and ignorant. Words create emotional poison, don’t listen to them so that poison doesn’t ever get to your pure heart ❤️ pic.twitter.com/SjntR2Pksk

Victoria Beckham, the English fashion designer and businesswoman, responded with a message on Instagram as well. She even took the opportunity to express that she was bullied as well and knows exactly how that hurts.
Jennifer Lopez also left a message for Keaton on Instagram. In her words, it broke her heart to see what Keaton had to go through but assured him he is not alone in this.
I saw this and it broke my heart... this little boy is suiffering at the hand of bullies like so many other little boys and girls... but you are not alone Keaton we are here. There is no room in this world for bullying or hate of any kind. And we will overcome it with love... As a parent it is my responsibility to make sure my kids know it is ok to go to an adult when someone is treating them in a way that hurts them or makes them uncomfortable or unhappy in anyway. Also to educate and teach them to treat people with kindness, love and respect no matter how different they may be from you!! #loveistheanswer #lovealwayswins #youarenotalone #bulliessuck #teachlove
The Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin also lent his voice to this story. He described Keaton as a smart guy and stated that he would love to bring to hang out with him in Vegas.

As part of the responses to his story, Chris Evans tweeted to Keaton saying:
Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi

This turned out to be the popular Christian quote that "all things work together for good" as Keaton's bullies just got him and his mother a ticket to LA for the Avengers premiere next year.
It is truly commendable how our celebrities came out en mass to show their support for Keaton while condemning the act of bullying in our schools.
