Yesterday the video of Keaton Jones went viral as stars started reaching out to the bullied teen. Since the video has gone viral and has received a massive amount of support, his mom has set up a PayPal account where people can donate money which led to some people starting to ask questions.
A Bellator fighter Joe Schilling reached out directly to the mother and instead of meeting the UFC fighters she was more concerned with him sending out the link to a GoFundMe page which raised some red flags.
Schilling then released a video with the caption, "Go look at her ig wacher her story posts she is just running a money scam. Really really sad and disgusting." And then he began tagging the celebrities that reached out to him in support.
Schilling said in an irate instagram post:
"I feel pretty stupid right now. I was pretty moved by Keaton Jones video so I reached out to his mom and was going to bring him out to LA for a Bellator event that's coming up, big show, and and introduce him to fighters, be his friend, and she just wants money. She just wants me to share her GoFund me account."
Schilling also claimed he asked her what the GoFundMe account was for and the mother claimed "You know christmas is coming and I'm a single mother, blah blah, blah, money's tight right now."
The GoFundMe account has reached over &58,000 in donations.
Keaton's mother is fighting back saying that she never told Schilling that she would rather have donations instead of help from celebrities.
JOnes is also under fire for some alleged posts on her personal Facebook page with her and a confederate flag as well as the photo posted below of her children standing next to the confederate flag.
Jones released this statement
"I love my kids: Ya'll people do not know me or my family," Jones wrote. "Did y'all know that my son Keaton was spit on in school, picked on by teachers, that supposed to be there for him??? I'm guessing y'all didn't because y'all wanna steady Judge me and say I'm using him for money that's false."
