Will the real Kimberly Jones please stand up?
Unfortunately, the stroking time has also led to backlash.
Immediately after the video became an Internet sensation, social media users delved up unauthorized Facebook photos that appeared to feature mom Kimberly and their own families posing with the Confederate flag.
As you surely know, the flag is widely regarded as a typify of an extremely distressing period for people of color in American history. As The Washington Post once said in June of 2015 😛 TAGEND
“Even to say that it’s about heritage not detest, is to recognize that for many people it is inextricably about hate. You can’t filter out the combating racism and leave what’s pure and historical in the flag, because that integrity doesn’t prevail. Some things are so primitively stained or darkened by record that that can never be mounted side. The flag is a perfect example.”
But it wasn’t just about the problematic flag.
Additionally, she allegedly wrote a post two weeks after the neo-nazi rallying in Charlottesville slamming “butt hurt Americans” who are “crying” over( what appears to be) racism.
As we’ve mentioned before, while these poles are not verified — and can no longer be verified as she has since deleted her Facebook page — they’ve been reported to be the real deal.
Earlier, we told you about MMA fighter Joe Schilling’s sharing of an Instagram conference with a user he thought was Kim — a convo that alleged that all Kim missed was coin for her bullied son. We shaped sure to note that while it was a big slouse of the viral whirlwind, it was NOT verified to be authentic.( In the since edited berth, Schilling even acknowledges that @kimberlyjones_38 might be a “fake accounting pretending to be his mom.”)
Well now we’re even more sure it wasn’t real, as Keaton’s sister, Lakyn, has disavowed the history as belonging to their father. The sister says the mother has a verified detail, and it’s not the one featured in Joe’s post( more on Keaton’s sister afterwards ).
Furthermore, in an article published Monday afternoon, Fox News reportedly spoke to Kim via Instagram direct content who repudiates she is profiting off of her son’s agony. She reportedly said 😛 TAGEND
“I did not tell him that I would rather have subscriptions instead of the help from celebrities.”
In regards to those pics with the Confederate flag, she reportedly said 😛 TAGEND
“I’ve taken that down for a reason.”
Kim likewise reportedly wrote in an Insta post 😛 TAGEND
“I cherish my girls: Ya’ll beings do not know me or my family … Did y’all know that my son Keaton was spewed on in academy, picked on by teaches, that supposed to be there for him ??? I’m suspecting y’all didn’t because y’all wanna steady Judge me and say I’m using him for fund that’s false.”
Of course, it’s ambiguous if Fox News spoke to her verified report or not as they didn’t supply the manage, which brings us back to Keaton’s sister.
She took to Twitter on Monday to confirm that Instagram account @ kimberlyjones_3 8( the one that spoke to Joe Schilling) is NOT her mom’s real sheet and ALSO says they have NOT set up a GoFundMe note 😛 TAGEND
The Instagram KimberlyJones_3 8 is NOT my mom. She has a private Instagram and hasn’t talked to anyone. We haven’t received any coin and don’t plan on it. The gofundme’s aren’t by any of us.

So what’s going to happen to the GoFundMe accountings? Harmonizing to TMZ, the one labeled “Stand Up for Keaton” — which has received over $58,249 in donations — has been put on hold to ensure that Kim is the beneficiary. The person who started the page does not know the family personally. A second page — which said it was started by Kim to fund Keaton’s Christmas presents — has been shut down due to impostor pertains. Again, Lakyn says their own families hasn’t caused any account.
What. A. Mess !!!
While the debate continues to beverage with confounding segments of information, one thing is for sure — NO CHILD SHOULD EVER BE BULLIED![ Image via Facebook .]
