Video of a Tennessee boy's tearful plea to bullies has made international headlines and inspired celebrities to reach out. 

The New York Post reports that Kimberly Jones picked her son, Keaton, up from school because he was afraid to face his aggressors at lunch. 

He was visibly upset as he described the actions of his mean-spirited schoolmates.  

"They made fun of my nose, the called me ugly, they say I have no friends," he says.

"[They] poured milk on me, put ham down my clothes, [and] threw bread at me."  

Even as he fought back tears, Keaton remained optimistic about his situation. 

"If you are made fun of, just don't let it bother you. Stay strong, I guess. It's hard, but it will probably get better one day."   

The now-viral video has been circulated non-stop since it was first posted. Countless celebrities have offered words of support. Some, like Avengers: Infinity War actor Chris Evans, even invited Keaton to hang out.  

"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?" Evans tweeted. 

Actress Hailee Steinfeld came forth with a particularly tempting offer: a date at the premiere of Pitch Perfect 3 this Tuesday.,

UFC President Dana White gave the boy an opportunity to tour the UFC headquarters in Las Vegas.  

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker offered 4 tickets to watch his home state's NFL team take on the Jacksonville Jaguars later this year.   

Many more, including Katy Perry, country singer Kelsea Ballerini and reigning UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, tweeted their support. 

Additionally, a GoFundMe campaign has raised over $55,000 for Keaton's future education. 

Stay strong, little dude.
