Controversy Erupts After Celebs Support Keaton Jones

Many times these days, viral moments involve some sort of scandal, embarrassment, wrong-doing, police violence, or shaming. However, this weekend, we witnessed a viral trend that was about empathy, compassion and humanity.

A young boy named Keaton Jones took the internet by storm after his mother posted a video of him crying after being cruelly bullied by kids at his school.

Black celebrities by the dozens began to send Keaton words of encouragement and special invites to be his buddy against his bullies, but then, things started to go left…

Keaton and his family live in Tennessee and they are HARDCORE redneck, confederate-flag-waving, likely-Trump supporters and that begged the perfectly valid question…

Some felt a type of way…

…some didn’t.

What say you? Is there really something wrong with comforting a young boy despite his family’s deplorable values?
