Knoxville, TN — After his tear-jerking story about being bullied at school went viral, donations quickly poured into a GoFundMe campaign set up for the alleged bullying victim, Keaton Jones. To date, they have raised more than $50,000 in donations.
Now, it is being reported that upon Keaton’s return to school on Monday, he was assaulted and robbed for showing up with a brand new Rolex watch, Gucci belt, Jordan sneakers, and a hoverboard. All these items were allegedly purchased with funds the family received from GoFundMe donations.
According to staff at Keaton’s school, the boy was seen riding his hoverboard through the halls on campus early Monday morning.
As many know, Keaton Jones made headlines after his mother shared a video of him on social media. In the video, a troubled Keaton is seen in tears while he asks why people find joy in bullying him. Because of the gut-wrenching video, people all over the world wanted to come to his aid. As a result, nearly $60,000 have been raised for him. Celebrities who have voiced their love and support for Keaton include Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Demi Lovato, Chris Evans, and more.
However, within 72 hours of going viral, Internet sleuths found photos of Keaton’s family members posing with Confederate flags. Anti-Black comments made by Keaton’s mother, Kimberley, on Facebook have also been dug up and plastered across social media. These discoveries have led many to speculate that Keaton was bullied because of racial slurs made towards his Black peers, including the N-word.
Evidently, other students at Keaton’s school didn’t take the GoFundMe come-up scheme lightly and banded together to beat and rob Keaton when he got to school.
“I’m not gonna lie he deserved it,” said Kathy Baker, Keaton’s teacher, “he is extremely racist to his Black classmates and he had the nerve to tell millions he was being bullied. He walked into my class this morning wearing designer clothes and riding a hoverboard, and was immediately pulverized by other students in my class,” Ms. Baker recounted.
Keaton was transported to a local hospital where it was determined he had suffered bone fractures and serious bruising. “The kid was f*cked up,” said Dr. Thomas Wilson, “it looked like he went a few rounds with Mike Tyson.”
Keaton is expected to make a full recovery within a few weeks.
