Keaton Jones' Mom Speaks to Confederate Flag Posts on Facebook

Keaton Jones and his mom Kim are speaking out about the viral video that put the spotlight on their family after he was bullied at school.

Now, the family is explaining why they made the viral video on Facebook, and explaining the Confederate Flag Facebook posts that were unearthed later on social media.

“[Keaton] became more and more agitated and didn’t want to go back to school,” Kim said. “I knew that it could be great and I knew that it could be awful, and it has been.”

“The only two photos — the only two photos on my entire planet that I am anywhere near a Confederate flag. It was ironic. It was funny,” Kim said about the photos in question.

Keaton revealed it was his idea to make the video. “I had enough of it. They had said that someone was going to beat me up in lunch so I texted my mom and I said, ‘What do I do here?’” the 11-year-old said.

“It made me feel like I had accomplished something real. Something that could actually change the world,” Keaton said of the response to the video.

    Sweet kid. He will grow into his looks. Good for him for coming out on SM about the abuse. If he becomes 6 feet something he doesn’t need to worry about a thing as far as looks go. Even if he ends up looking like Howard stern, he will find plenty of women. That is the one physical trait all women and little feminine boys care about above all else as far as men are concerned – height.

    I feel sorry for the boy. She’s a big mouthed redneck, what a shock.

    I feel sorry for you. People like you who bully anyone in the South as rednecks.

    I’m sick of this. People suffer everywhere. Take care of your own personal problems in your own home, school, community.

  • Stoni

    If it’s so bad, Keaton, change schools. Case closed. Problem solved. You’re welcome.

    People in the South are a bunch of dumb rednecks who only two words – Trump and the n word.

  • SquidBillie

    Oh shut the F*ck up. Look at her Facebook post, dummy, she’s as redneck as they get.

    Its good to bring up bullying issues..this is not about the mother this is about the son… not everyone has a quick tongue…some are sensitive and cry easy…AND THAT IS OKAY…we parents must teach our children early on that in DIVERSITY there is beauty and strength. Accepting it as a normal part of growing up has to stop.

    Great, now can they go away? 😳😩

    know* – so I guess it’s at least three.

    The mother is an opportunistic, die-hard racist. Her facebook post stated that she wants white people to “stick together” to overcome “the predators” (i.e. African Americans.) She also advocated for the KKK and neo Nazis when they invaded Charlottesville, VA and berated those who opposed their bigotry and violence. As a white woman who is Jewish, I find anyone who is a proponent of this evil to not be worth the time of day. I feel very sorry for her son who will undoubtedly be exposed to her racism and exploitation. This woman wants cash, nothing else. She exemplifies the worst of American culture. And her tormented young son will be the ultimate loser because of her avarice and vile actions.

    Do you even have children? You can’t just switch schools, at least not where I am. It is done by zoning. Where you live determines your school. So unless the family is able to up and move your suggestion is not helpful.

    Where I live we have open enrollment so kids have a choice where they go to school, it’s not dictated by where you live.
