Viral Bullying Victim Was Just One Huge GoFundMe Scam That Everyone Fell For Except Us Because Being Bullied Is The Best Thing That Can Happen To A Kid

Millions of people watched this viral video of a Tennessee boy named Keaton Jones, filmed by his mother Kimberly Jones, in which he cries about being the victim of bullying at school:
Real emotional stuff. A bunch of people messaged our various active Facebook pages about this story and wanted us to write about it. We chose not to, and for good reasons:
- I don’t know these people, and I assume everything on the Internet is a scam in 2017 until proven otherwise.
- Parents shouldn’t make their children the center of a post that is designed to go viral.
- It sends the wrong message and plays into victim mentality.
- It leads to people blaming the school, when in all likelihood the teachers and administrators at that school were powerless to stop whatever occurred.
You see it all the time when parents share pictures of their kid at a birthday party and no one showed up. God, shut the fuck up. No one showed up to your kid’s birthday party because he’s probably a big bag of queefs who’s burned every bridge imaginable with his peers.
If this kid was bullied in school there are proper steps that can be taken. Schools have anti-bullying plans (which I’m against in principal) that explain step by step what will happen in an event like this. The appropriate thing for Mom to do was to go to the school, demand answers, and work with the adults to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
Instead she made a viral video and some dumbass set up a GoFundMe for Keaton’s college fund that raised nearly $60,000.
And as soon as a GFM is setup, you have to assume there’s some sort of scam going on.
So we waited. And while we did so pretty much every other celebrity in America rushed to make Keaton Jones America’s new favorite bullying victim:

This boy is incredibly brave and the video really got to me. @danawhite, If he takes you up on your offer to see UFC Headquarters, I would be honored to host him and his family at our place if they need somewhere to stay. https://t.co/EWx05o0yI0

Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi

Now don’t get me wrong, I do feel bad for kids who are bullied. But the problem is that we now celebrate victims of bullying. We all come together and feel bad for them in order for them to feel better about themselves.
But guess what? Bullying usually works out well in the long run for “victims” of bullying in school.
Just like millions of Americans I was bullied back in the day. These shithead 7th graders used to take my stuff on the bus because I was the only 8th grader. They grabbed my Pittsburgh Pirates hat with the CURVED brim that my aunt gave me, which I LOVED, and threw it out the window. I was heated. They called me the pillow fucker because I admitted that I enjoyed scrambled pornography. They rightfully made fun of my face because the rocky adolescence I was going through turned my face into the surface of Mars. They made fun of my Shaw’s brand shoes and lack of a Starter jacket, because my parents chose to save money for my college education instead of pimping me out.
They made fun of pretty much everything about me because they were in a group, and as the only 8th grader on the bus, I couldn’t do much back. I HATED bus rides home from school because of them.
So what’s a 13 year old boy to do in the 90’s before anti-bullying curriculums came around? Simple – fight back. I reached my breaking point one day when some shithead 7th grader got a little too close for comfort. I threw him up against the window, and as expected his friends jumped in and started hitting me. I felt nothing but joy because it felt so good to finally snap on them.
The bus driver stopped the bus and kicked them all off and drove me home. I’ll never forget how awesome that guy was. He told the 7th graders that he had no respect for bullies and people who don’t fight one on one. The next day they all got suspended and I didn’t. Now they all have the “disease” and I’m over here getting paid to write blogs in my pajamas.
And that’s my whole point with bullying. It’s a sad, but natural part of life. And I would much rather my kids be bullied, than be the bullies themselves. Because it’s how we teach our kids to handle bullying that makes them stronger human beings.
Instead with today’s anti-bullying culture we’ve raised a society of pussies who see the values and rewards of making a video like this, crying about kids pouring milk on them. If I was this kid’s Mom I would’ve told him to take that milk carton and shoved it directly up their ass.
Boom. No more bullying.
But instead pretty much every celebrity with a Twitter account sent their thoughts and prayers. One of them was MMA fighter Joe Schilling. Keaton’s mother got in touch with him and he offered her tickets to a fight. She told him that what she really wanted him to do was share the GoFundMe. Then this happened:
Yup. “Us whites stick together.” God I hate people like this. I generally despise anyone who assumes that people who share a skin pigmentation should associate with each other simply because of that one similarity. And Joe Schilling isn’t pleased about it:
In fairness, it’s not verified that this was her Instagram account, and her daughter is denying that it’s her. Once again proving that not everything on the Internet can be trusted. But it had the GFM up and was actively collecting money.
Then these pictures started to emerge:
I don’t even know what that post means because I don’t speak southern. But the confederate flag pictures are amazing. There’s nothing more hilarious than watching some inbred redneck holding that piece of shit flag ALONGSIDE THE AMERICAN FLAG!!! Have any of you idiots ever opened a history book? That flag was the battle flag of Virginia, and was flown by people who were ACTIVELY KILLING AMERICAN SOLDIERS!! It represents a country that never really existed, which declared war on the greatest country that has ever existed. It’s like waving an American flag and an ISIS flag at the same time and calling yourself Patriotic. The two are completely contradictory.
And you “stand for the flag?” Bitch, you’re flying a flag that represents treason. But yea, you stood up for a song, so you must be one of the “good ones.”
But of course SJWs are more outraged because to them that flag represents racism. It doesn’t. People who fly the confederate flag are just doing so because they know it upsets liberals. They’re just trying to get you going, and it works every single time. If you see someone flying that flag just point out to them that they’re a dirty traitor who should probably get the fuck out of America since they’re flying the flag of a country that declared its independence from America.
Of course all you really needed to see was this:
Dog filter. Piece of shit. Nuff said.
It’s just hilarious watching everyone backpedal now. They hate the mother, but do they hate the kid? Are we supposed to hate the kid now? Was her really bullied? What’s an Internet mob to do? As for us I just kind of assume the kid is an asshole. He was raised by trash and probably goes around picking fights so no one likes him either. He can’t bully other people because he has no friends to form a group with, so he made this viral video and everyone fell for it except Turtleboy. As usual.
