In the video, Kimberly asks her son what the bullies did to him.
"They make fun of my nose, they call me ugly, they say I have no friends... They put ham down my clothes, threw bread at me," he said.
He continued, "Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What’s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them?”
The video, which quickly went viral, is no longer public but hasn't gone unnoticed.
Many celebrities have expressed their support on social media. Chris Evans, known for playing Captain America, offered to bring Keaton to the premiere of "Avengers: Infinity War" next year.
Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi

This is heartbreaking. But the response of support for him is a beautiful thing. Add me to your long list of friends Keaton. https://t.co/NKasvdo00u
