Being bullied sucks. As a society, we are growing in awareness that bullying can be a literally life-threatening issue and shouldn't be brushed off. That doesn't mean nobody gets bullied anymore. Keaton Jones knows this all too well, as does his family. Recently, a video of him talking about his bullying experience caught the attention of someone who might just be in a position to help him out.
Meet Keaton Jones a very smart little boy who is being bullied at school. This video is heartbreaking!! I want to bring Keaton to Vegas and hang out at UFC Headquarters. If anyone knows how i can reach the family please let me know. Thank u everyone pic.twitter.com/BR8c4ldDFc— Dana White (@danawhite) December 10, 2017
Dana reposted the sob-inducing video along with an offer to bring the child to the UFC headquarters. People's reactions were complex.
This broke my heart, but the overwhelming support and love for this kid is helping mend it. Stay strong little bro ❤️— Destiny 2 (@MoreConsole) December 11, 2017
This is so sad!! Where are the teachers at lunch? Hope they find those kids and suspend them and get them counseling! Have to wonder what they learn at home to think that this behavior is ok! Being cool is protecting the weak - not hurting them!!— Leo Rautins (@LeoRautins) December 10, 2017
I just watched it. Like a second ago. It’s so sad. The little dude is so strong and should know it gets better. I’m in tears.— Ashley McAllister (@ashmca) December 11, 2017
It was heartbreaking to see this, it also immediately lit a fire in me. I wish I could take him to school, protect him and take care of business. Thank you Dana for standing up for this little guy. Very admirable!— Joe Lawley (@jlawley77) December 11, 2017
If he wants to training at my bjj gym when in Vegas we have a great group of kids that would love to work with him.— Evan Dunham (@evandunham155) December 10, 2017
Please let him know, there is a community of fighters who are willing to support him in any way possible. Been there, done that!— Marion Reneau (@BelizeanBruiser) December 10, 2017
Keaton, I'm sorry those kids are being so mean. Unless people like that change they will end up having unhappy lives. I think you're cool!— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) December 9, 2017
