Keaton’s mother, Kimberly Jones, filmed him crying in the passenger seat of a vehicle after she said she picked him up from school “AGAIN” because he was afraid to go to lunch. “Keaton asked to do this,” Jones wrote in a Facebook post.
In the video, Keaton said other students made fun of the way he looks, poured milk on him, put ham down his clothes and said he had no friends.
