Refresh for updates Seems half of Hollywood is reaching out to Keaton Jones - meaning the other half just hasn't yet seen the bullied Tennessee boy's heartbreaking Facebook video. Celebrities and sports stars have alsoshowed their support on social media.

On December 9, a tearful video of a boy named Keaton went viral.

The Facebook video has gotten more than 17 million views and has since been shared more than 350,000 times, with many people praising the courageous boy for speaking out against bullying. I've even had friends of mine tell me they're kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people.

As for Keaton, we hope he has the best time at the game with his family.

T.I offered words of encouragement, urging Keaton to not allow his cowardly bullies to make him feel that he isn't good enough.

JESSICA JONES Announces Debut Date for Season 2 in New Trailer
As this is the first teaser trailer, it's meant to get you excited about the new season without giving away too much. Now, it isn't really known how Jessica learned of the phrase.

He explains: "I don't like that they do it to me and I for sure don't like that they do it to other people because it's not OK". It's not OK. People that are different don't need to be criticized about it.

Kimberly Jones shared video in which her son, Keaton, talks about mean kids making fun of his nose, his clothes and pouring milk on him.

Actor Chris Evans also personally invited him and his mum to come to the Los Angeles premiere of Avengers: Infinity War, with his co-star Mark Ruffalo adding: "You got a pal in the Hulk".

Keaton's questions about bullying clearly struck a chord with more than just his middle school community and his mom's friends on Facebook.

Tyler Byrd, a wide receiver for the University of Tennessee football team, responded to a call by former NFL player Donté Stallworth to rally support for Keaton, saying several Volunteer team members planned to visit the boy at school next week.
