By now you've probably heard of Keaton Jones, a student at Horace Maynard Middle School in Maynardville in Union County, Tennessee who has been experiencing some brutal bullying. It got so bad that he asked his mom to film a video of him talking about his own personal experience with being bullied. It has since gone viral. But what Keaton probably didn't expect was to have a number of celebs support him through this whole thing. 

In the video, a frustrated Keaton is seen talking about his issues with bullying. "They make fun of my nose, they call me ugly, they say I have no friends … they poured milk on me," he says while holding back tears.

It's devastating to watch, but Keaton's video has drawn the attention of a number of celebs who have since expressed their sympathy towards the boy and what he's going through and have endorsed anti-bullying messages. I'm talking everyone from Chris Evans, Katy Perry, Mark Ruffalo, Ryan Seacrest, Enrique Iglesias, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Lopez and more. 

Here's a look at a few celebs who have really been working as advocates to help support this young boy and get the message of anti-bullying out there!
