Keaton Jones, you are not alone.

The young boy has received thousands of messages of support, after a video of him describing his experience of being bullied in school went viral.

The video had millions of views as people unite against bullying this weekend.

Kimberly Jones, Keaton’s mother, picked up her son Keaton from school early because he was too scared to go to lunch. And the video she took of him  – saying he was called ugly and encouraging other kids to stay strong in the face of bullying – is everywhere.

“I would just like to know why they are harassing me,” Keaton said, before bursting to tears.

“They make fun of my nose, they say I’m ugly They say I have no friends,” he added.

His testimony, which he concludes with “It’ll be better someday,” quickly led to a wave of sympathy online.

Anonymous persons, including celebrities, voiced out their support through #StandWithKeaton.

Singer Katy Perry, actors Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Chris Evans, and NBA Basketball Superstar LeBron James, to name a few, rallied behind Keaton to condemn bullying.
