A heartbreaking video of a young boy pleading to be left alone by bullies has gone viral.
Keaton Jones, from Tennessee, asked his mother, Kimberly Jones, a question that would break any parents heart.
‘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,’ Keaton asked his mother through tears. ‘It’s not okay,’ he said.

His mother then asked: ‘What did they say to you?’
‘They make fun of my nose. They call me ugly. They say I have no friends,’ Keaton answered as tears poured from his eyes.
‘What did they do to you at lunch?’ his mum asked.
Keaton replied: ‘Poured milk on me and put ham down my clothes. Threw bread at me.’
‘I don’t like that they do it to me and I for sure don’t like that they do it to other people because it’s not okay,’ he told his mother.
‘People that are different, don’t need to be criticized about it. It’s not their fault. If you are made fun of just don’t let it bother you. Stay strong I guess. It’s hard.
‘But it’ll probably get better one day,’ Keaton concluded.
His tear-jerking video captured the hearts of more than 19.5 million viewers on Facebook after it was posted by his mother.
Through his tears Keaton tells anyone that is bullied to NOT let it bother them, even though he knows it is hard and that it sucks, adding “It will probably get better one day.”
‘For the record, Keaton asked to do this AFTER he had he me pick him up AGAIN because he was afraid to go to lunch,’ his mother Kimberly wrote.
The video has been shared over 391K times and attracted over 15oK comments.
