Chris Evans, aka Captain America/Steve Rogers, has reached out to a kid who was being targeted by bullies and offered to take him to next year’s Avengers: Infinity War premiere.
You may have heard yesterday about the heartbreaking story of Keaton Jones, a student from Knoxville, Tennessee who posted a tear-filled video discussing the torment he’s suffering at the hands of some bullies.
His mother Kimberly uploaded her son’s emotionally-charged video to bring to light the bullying Keaton is going through and to create awareness.
For the record, Keaton asked to do this AFTER he had he me pick him up AGAIN because he was afraid to go to lunch. My kids are by no stretch perfect, & at home, he’s as all boy as they come, but by all accounts he’s good at school. Talk to your kids. I’ve even had friends of mine tell me they’re kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people. We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere.

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?
