Following the viral content, numerous online users suspect the credibility of Keaton's video, express that his mother's posts overshadowed their support for the young boy and now they are unsure if they stand by him.

Public attention to bullying tends to come in waves, surging around cases like Keaton's before falling off again.

Keaton says in the video.

Keaton Jones of Knoxville, Tennessee is now known by the President, LeBron James and millions around the USA who are applauding the middle school student for his bravery while in the midst of an emotional moment.

"As many of you know I paused the donations as well as the comments".

In the video, Keaton says he had milk poured on him and food thrown at him during lunch in the school's cafeteria. Keaton said. "What's the point of it?"

After posting the video was to Facebook and it subsequently exploded on Twitter, Keaton's mum, Kimberley, clarified that her son wanted to share his experience to raise awareness of the devastating effects bullying can have. Keaton asked. "Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?"

Talking it out- and the love of his mother- seemed to help Keaton Jones because he ends with a hopeful message for others who are feeling the pain of bullying.

Now Captain America's Chris Evans is the next on the list as he looked to cheer Keaton up by sending him words of advice via Twitter, along with a big surprise: an invitation for him and his mum to attend the Avengers: Infinity War premiere next week.

He continued, "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?".

"What do they say to you?" the child is asked by his mother. That's why they want the school system to step up and change how kids interact with one another. "Stranger Things" actress Millie Bobby Brown, who is 13, tweeted, "I wanna be your friend".

'We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere, ' she wrote.

Keaton is an inspiration to the more than 3.2 million students who fall victim to bullying each year.

"No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorized, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn", the first lady said.
