By now, you've probably seen the name 'Keaton Jones' mentioned by at least one of your favorite celebrities on Twitter. The young student from Knoxville, TE has gone viral after appearing in a heartbreaking video that reveals the true damage bullying causes.

"They make fun of my nose. They call me ugly. They say I have no friends," Keaton says through tears in the video posted by his mother, Kimberly, which was reportedly recorded after Keaton had to be picked up from school to avoid lunchtime bullies. Though he goes on to detail how he and other children at his school are teased and tormented, he offers a message of encouragement, and ends the video by telling all victims of bullying that "it'll probably get better one day."

The powerful video struck a chord with viewers - including a whole host of famous faces. From Katy Perry, to Demi Lovato, to Chris Evans, celebrities across the board have rallied around Keaton. Though it began as a campaign for peace, which included at least two GoFundMe accounts aimed at helping the Jones family, it has now become shrouded by scandal after several apparently-racist social media posts by Kimberly Jones were uncovered, and speculations were leveled that she had encouraged her son to use racial slurs against his peers. Multiple celebrities have since voiced their continued support for Keaton, despite how troubled the accusations made them feel.

Scroll down to see the most heartfelt celebrity reactions, and be sure to add your thoughts in the comments.

This is Knoxville student Keaton Jones, and this is what he has to say about bullying:

Spot on! He really nailed it. Bullies are insecure people who are extremely insecure about themselves and take it out on others just to feel better about themselves. But in the end, they're not happy.

No I will not be kind to any one. When I got bullied when I was young it only made me strong physically and psychologically.. Now I'm a bully for bullies. I'm the king of all bullies...

Humm... maybe a call from a Senator to the school board/School may help action in school bullying come to an end? Mr. Corker, please use your power for some good in this situation. Thanks.

Didn't Chris Brown beat up Rhianna? Bullying sucks but I'm pretty sure domestic violence is just as bad if not worse.

I have a feeling that Mr. Trump over here wouldn't do the same thing to and kid with dark skin. That makes me puke a bit, even if it is a nice request.

I used to get bullied for standing up for kids that were abused in school...but I have a very strong personality when it comes to any abuse and it just went over my head because I knew that I was better than the people that bullied those that were more sensitive to the harsh words and cruel things that kids can do to others...no school should allow that on their premises and the parents of these kids that do this need to step in and handle the situation...if my kid had ever done something like this he'd had been in the woodshed. My son is very compassionate to the under dogs just like me....it does get better and just be true to yourself and do not abuse others even when you yourself is going thru this...
