Washington Post reported that Keaton asked his mom in the video that she posted on her Facebook: ‘Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it?’
‘Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not okay.’
With tears running down his cheeks, Keaton described how he was bullied. We learn that milk was poured over his head and more happened to the poor boy.
‘People that are different don’t need to be criticized for it…if you are made fun of, don’t let it bother you. Stay strong, I guess. But, it’ll probably get better one day.’
