Celebrities reacted last night to the GoFundMe hoax perpetrated by a southern redneck who hoped to cash in on a viral video that claimed her son was bullied in school.
Both the Tennessee woman behind the hoax, Kimberly Jones, 37, and her son, Keaton, were exposed as racists and both of her GoFundme accounts were frozen last night after outraged social media users contacted the crowdfunding platform.
Keaton is not disabled mentally or physically; he was born with a cleft lip/palate which was repaired surgically but he has a permanent lisp. So if you fell for his little pity party, you got played.
Dozens of celebs hopped on the bandwagon offering cash, gifts and trips to Keaton — without verifying that his story was even legit. They just went along with the crowd because that’s what bandwagon riders do.
Stars such as singer Chris Brown and rapper T.I., expressed their regrets and urged their Instagram followers not to donate.
That’s what they get for hopping on the bandwagon of every viral video on the Internet. There are thousands of kids who could use their help in the black community. But unfortunately, those kids will have to wait until their videos go viral.
Ok… So it seems as though we were somewhat mislead by what we saw yesterday in regards to Keaton. Now while I still stand by initial standpoint whole heartedly,I also believe in the laws of karma & reciprocity. I've always heard "What make ya laugh'll make ya cry." I'm thinkin this is a true example of that. But I STILL support Lil dude… even IF he's truly being given a taste of his own meds because when it's all said & done… while his family is spewing hatred around him… he himself will be able to speak from experience how much LOVE was shown to him on the gram by the very ones he's been taught to DISPISE!!! That's how we unlearn racism. THAT DONT MEAN GO DONATE NO MONEY THO!!!! I'm completely against ALL THAT?????!!!!??????????
