Keaton Jones, a young boy from Knoxville, had broken America’s heart after his mother had posted a video of him describing the bullies from school. Now that this has gone viral, many have offered their support for Keaton, including Captain America.
Chris Evans responded to Keaton’s video on Twitter, posted a heartfelt message and told the boy to stay strong. Evans had extended an invite for Keaton and his mom to attend the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War.
The invite was noticed by Keaton’s sister, Lakyn, who said that her younger brother will “absolutely love” to attend this premiere. Evans said that he will make it happen.
One of Evans’ Avengers co-stars, Mark Ruffalo had offered his support for the young boy, calling the middle schooler his “own personal superhero.”
Keaton’s mom, Kim, first shared the video on Friday, and it has gotten a profound response. Multiple WWE Superstars have tweeted to Keaton, as well as an array of celebrities and athletes. At the time of this posting, a “Stand Up For Keaton” GoFundMe page has raised over $30,000 for Keaton and his family.
Avengers: Infinity War will debut on May 4th, 2018.
