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.
The flag is seen by some as a symbol of racism after it was first introduced in the US Civil War by the states fighting to keep slavery legal.
Since controversy began clouding the heartwarming story, Jones has deleted the video of Keaton and has turned all her social media accounts to private.
In relation to the Facebook photos, Ms Jones said "it was meant to be ironic".
Joseph Lam's GoFundMe page exceeds its fundraising goal of $20,000.
The Facebook page, which also contained the original viral video of Keaton, has been taken down along with a Go Fund Me page that had raised $58,000 for Keaton after Kimberly was criticized for attempting to make money off of the situation, Deadline reported.
A video of a boy tearfully talking about being bullied at school has gone viral and prompted an outpouring of support from Hollywood celebrities, music stars, athletes and others. "It was to raise awareness to bullying", he said.Читайте также: Virushka: Go green for their special reception invite
The response has been overwhelming for Jones's mother Kimberly. He said his offer to invite Keaton to a Los Angeles event was knocked back. Many now considered her the bully, just like her son was the bully. "I wanted to find a way to really make a difference and not just be picked up and then thrown down", Kimberly Jones said.
"She said, 'Christmas is coming and I'm a single mother and blah blah blah, money is tight, ' whatever".
Reaction on social media has been mixed.
"I mean, you know, yesterday, he was a hero".
"Condemnation before evaluation is the ultimate form of ignorance". This was about Bullying, specifically in this case, Keaton. I don't know the family personally and never claimed to have known them.
On Tuesday, a video posted on Twitter by wide receiver Tyler Byrd shows Keaton Jones smiling ear to ear in a custom Vols jersey with his initials on it, a far cry from the sobbing little boy in the bullying video. "We have to be the voice for the voiceless".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
