"Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to 'em?  It's not okay," the teary-eyed kid is seen asking his mom, Kimberly Jones.

Keaton's mom described some of the bullying incidents, which included his classmates pouring milk on him.

"Talk to your kids," Jones wrote along with her video. "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."

The video, which was uploaded on Facebook this past Friday, has gone massively viral - being shared over 400K times and viewed by nearly 22 million people.
