Facing the backlash. Kimberly Jones, the mother of 11-year-old bullied student Keaton Jones, is responding to the controversy surrounding her alleged racist comments and photos with a confederate flag discovered on her now-deleted Facebook page.
She has apologized on the Today show and said she will be hosting a cross burning this Saturday in her hometown of Tennessee to raise money that will be used to raise awareness against bullying.
However despite the controversy with his mom, the Tennessee student still hopes his story will inspire others.
“To inspire people that are bullied, well, just give them a voice that they might not have to speak out about it and how it’s not right to bully,” Keaton told Today.
