  • Mother of bullied schoolboy Keaton Jones denies being racist

White is the father of Keaton Jones, the teen subject in a viral video in which he describes being bullied.

After alleged bullying victim Keaton Jones received almost $60k via GoFundMe donations over the weekend, it is being reported that upon returning back to school monday, he was beat and robbed for his possessions, which include a Rolex watch, Gucci belt, pair of Jordan sneakers, and a hoverboard, all which he allegedly purchased with his donation money. What's the point of it? "I mean I feel like we're not racist", Jones told ABC News. "It's not OK", Jones says in the video. "They call me ugly". "They had said that someone was going to beat me up in lunch so I texted my mom and I said, 'What do I do here?' " Keaton, added that the kids at his Tennessee school "make fun of my nose".

"People that are different don't need to be criticised about it - it's not their fault".

It was all good just a couple of days ago.

That day may have come sooner than he expected. Evans invited the boy to attend next year's L.A. premiere of "Avengers: Infinity War".

"Stay strong, Keaton. Don't let them make you turn cold. Do your best, Twitter".

Her daughter also addressed the controversy via social media, tweeting: "Those who know me and my family know we aren't racist". He was joined by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Cardi B, Funkmaster Flex, Trae Tha Truth and Chris Brown, who all offered kind words of encouragement for the boy. "But I STILL support Lil dude... even IF he's truly being given a taste of his own meds because when it's all said & done... while his family is spewing hatred around him... he himself will be able to speak from experience how much LOVE was shown to him on the gram by the very ones he's been taught to DISPISE!"

Keaton told CBS that he had been regularly bullied by five schoolmates but was too afraid of them to tell the teacher.

"Friends, overwhelmed is the understatement of the world right now".

"Those who know me and my family know we aren't racist", she wrote.

The image that was posted on her Facebook page August 25 - which has since been set to private - included the following comment. "I made the video to raise awareness for bullying, not for fame or fortune, it was not at all for that".

"It's not as rampant as the video would have you believe", Clay said. "I can't tell you what was done, but I can tell you action was taken with the children". While celebrities and athletes took to social media to show support for the 11-year-old Tennessee boy, others accused his mother of having ill intentions and a history of racism.
