Earlier this week a video of a little boy named Keaton Jones crying over being bullied went viral. Everyones heart went out to him. Celebrities tweeted about him, it was talked about on every morning show, TMZ picked it up and a large amount of money was raised through GoFundMe to give to the boy….but then something else happened. We found out that his father is a racist, homophobic jerk (that’s a kinder word than what I really want to say) who is in prison and has been for at least a year. How did we find out about this? TMZ did some digging and then posted about the father and included pictures of this little boy and his sister with his dad.
Here’s my question for you: Now that everyone knows he has a total racist jerk and criminal for a father who is in prison, do you think this will help or hurt him in school? Do you think this now gives the bullies in his school one more reason to pick on him? Does this mean that TMZ is now a bully as well by giving people ammunition against Keaton and his family? Just something to think about.
