Dana White's tweet about a young boy called Keaton Jones is going viral

Whatever your thoughts on Dana White, he's about to make this young man feel an awful lot better about himself.

UFC President Dana White has shared a video featuring Keaton Jones, an incredibly brave and passionate young man with a big future ahead of him.


Keaton, however, is being bullied at school, and Dana is not having it.

White writes: Meet Keaton Jones a very smart little boy who is being bullied at school. This video is heartbreaking!! I want to bring Keaton to Vegas and hang out at UFC Headquarters. If anyone knows how i can reach the family please let me know. Thank u everyone.

In the video, Keaton explains how kids at his school are giving him a hard time.

"Why do they bully? What's the point of it?" he asks. "Why are they taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It's not ok."


Keaton then explained to his mam how the bullies make fun of his appearance and say he has no friends, and how they humiliate him and other kids on a daily basis.

"It's not ok. People are different, it's not their fault. If you are made fun of, just don't let it bother you. Stay strong, I guess. It's hard but it'll probably get better one day."


Some of the tweets in response show there's a lot of good in the world.

One person wrote: You tell that beautiful boy, coming from someone that was bullied all through school, it absolutely does get better. Hang on. So many people are rooting for you. You can do this. You will make it to the other side. Never lose your kindness. You will do amazing things.
