Chris Evans Invites Bullying Kid To 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

A middle school boy in Tennessee is hopefully feeling the support of hundreds of thousands of people who saw his tears on social media.

The photo, which is now raising questions about the Jones family being "bullies" themselves, shows Kimberly smiling ear-to-ear with a Confederate flag.

Clay says the bullying is "not as rampant as the video would have you believe".

When Kimberly Jones picked up her son, Keaton, from school in the Knoxville, Tennessee, area last week, he asked her to record a video of him in the vehicle.

"I did not tell him that I would rather have donations instead of the help from celebrities", Jones said in an Instagram direct message.

And while we (hopefully) can all agree bullying is wrong, especially when the targets are those less able to defend themselves, or those who, as Keaton said, "different", like, say, a New York Times reporter with a physical disability. According to the post, her son was so afraid to go to lunch that he would instead call home to be picked up.

"I want to inspire people that are bullied, to just give them a voice that they might not have", he said. Why do they enjoy taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?

'Meet Keaton Jones a very smart little boy who is being bullied at school.

"Apologies again to those tweets I can't get to", she wrote.

Schilling says he asked her what the money was for, and she reportedly said said "You know, Christmas is coming".

One of the first to respond to the video was the Tennessee Titans' Delanie Walker, who reached out to Jones and his mother on Twitter Saturday with words of encouragement and an offer of tickets to a Titans game. "We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere".

Stars from around the world including Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Millie Bobby Brown as well as Avengers star Chris Evans, all reached out to Keaton.

Keaton is an inspiration to the more than 3.2 million students who fall victim to bullying each year. Those standing by the boy say regardless of his mother's actions, he doesn't deserve to be bullied.
