Bullied Boy Keaton Jones Gets Support From Chris Evans, Millie Bobby Brown, And More After Heartfelt Video

Hollywood is taking a stand against bullying.

After the video of Keaton Jones, a middle schooler from Tennessee, has gone viral on social media, plenty of movie actors and actresses have offered support to the bullied young boy.

Celebrities Stand With Keaton Jones

"Stay strong, Keaton," Chris Evans tweeted. "Don't let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better."

The Captain America: Civil War actor is only one of the dozens of celebrities who were touched by Jones' story. A hero not only on the big screen, Evans even invited Keaton to the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War in Los Angeles next year.

His co-star, Mark Ruffalo, also watched and was inspired by the viral video. The Marvel star promised that the bullies will one day regret their actions, especially when they find out that Keaton will soon meet Mr. Bruce Banner/the Incredible Hulk himself on the red carpet.

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown also reacted to the bullied boy's video. Like Keaton, Brown had to endure bullying before becoming an award-winning child star. In an interview in July, the 13-year-old shared her own experience with bullies.

"I was seven when I was bullied by a boy," she recounted. Although Brown eventually recovered from the experience, she has become an ally to fellow victims. She started @milliestopshate, a Twitter account dedicated to spreading love and positivity.

Mark Hamill, who reprises the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi this month, has an advice to Jones: do not mind the haters. The beloved actor explained that bullies are "sad people" who "hate themselves."

Zedd, Ryan Seacrest, Hailee Steinfeld, Charlie Puth, Terry Crews, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Snoop Dogg, Orlando Bloom, Eva Longoria, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are only a few of the dozens of celebrities expressing their love and support for Jones and other bullied kids.
Lakyn, Keaton's sister, reported on Twitter that the bullied boy has received all the well-wishes.

11-Year-Old Inspires Anti-Bullying Movement

Last week, Keaton's mom, Kimberly, posted a video of the boy on Facebook. On the caption, she explained that she had to pick up her son from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch. The 11-year-old was called ugly because of the scars left by a tumor operation on his head.

In the video below, a tearful Keaton asked, "Why do they bully?" He mentioned that people make fun of him and call him names for things that he cannot control.
