Criticism arises against bullied child's mother after pictures of Confederate flag surface

"I mean, you know, yesterday he was a hero. Today, the world hates us", Kimberly said during a "Today" sneak peek of NBC News' forthcoming interview. "And again, I'm trying really hard to think that I was trying not to get caught up in the positives". "It was unbelievable to get to know him and realize that we have a lot in common".

"I've said I spent most of my life being bullied and judged because I wasn't racist", Jones told CBS News.

After Keaton's mother, Kimberly Jones, was exposed for her pro-Confederate political stances, the rapper took to Instagram to let fans know where he stands. "Doesn't mean we are racist". "It was ironic. It was amusing", the mom told CBS News on Tuesday.

She added, "I am genuinely, truly sorry".

Keaton's older sister, Lakyn Jones, wrote on Twitter that same day that the account was not her mother. Keaton also said milk was poured on him and ham was put down his clothes."Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?"

"Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to 'em?"

White's alleged ties to white supremacy is just the latest twist in the insane story, which has dominated headlines since Keaton's viral video was first shared.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed Trump was trying to " slut-shame " Gillibrand. Gillibrand is the fifth senator to call for Trump's resignation.

"People are different, it's not their fault".

Celebrities and athletes across the country, including members of the Tennessee Titans and Memphis Grizzlies, pledged support for Keaton.

"The only two photos - the only two photos on my entire planet that I am anywhere near a Confederate flag".

But the school's principal Greg Clay told the local Knoxville Sentinel newspaper he was unaware of the bullying and incident described in the video. "It's pretty special", Fulmer tells Keaton Jones. "[It's] a serious thing that goes on in our society". She also said the GoFundMe page was started by a man she doesn't know. "They had said that someone was going to beat me up in lunch so I texted my mom and I said, 'What do I do here?'" She picked him up from school early, and they made the video in the parked vehicle. "This is an epidemic".

Keaton's mom, however, denied any racist intent behind the post with photos of her and son Keaton with a Confederate flag.

But after an initial wave of support and goodwill online, Ms Jones was accused of racist behaviour by people online. My brother doesn't say the "N" word. "Not her. Please leave it alone". In addition, she's shared a number of family photos featuring the rebel flag, one of which also shows a young woman holding a gun. As you can see in the clip below from Tennessee wide receiver Tyler Byrd, Jones was given a tour of the facility and took part in some quality time with Fulmer.
