Joe Schilling Keaton
Bellator kickboxer Schilling posted a moving video in which he said he felt “stupid” after reaching out to the mother of bullied child Keaton Jones, only for her to spurn his offer of a trip to LA and instead ask him for hard cash. A video of Keaton describing to Kimberly his ordeal at the hand of school bullies – who he says poured milk over him at lunch and called him “ugly” – recently went viral. The heartbreaking clip garnered more than 20 million views after being posted by the mom-of-three on her Facebook page. In response, a wave of sports celebrities rallied to offer the boy messages of support and exclusive presents who included UFC chief Dana White, who offered to bring Keaton to the promotion’s Las Vegas headquarters to “hang out” and meet fighters. Actor Chris Evans also proposed to bring the middle schooler to the Avengers premiere in LA next year. Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Gal Gadot were also on hand to send their sympathies. However, when fighter Schilling reached out to help Keaton through his mother, he says Keaton’s mother saddened him. This was because she refused to accept a trip to Los Angeles to attend a top Bellator event, instead insisting on the money.
