Mother of Keaton Jones DEFENDS photos of her and bullied son posing with Confederate flags and says ‘she feels like her family is not racist’

According to this:


The mother of Tennessee tween Keaton Jones is defending herself against accusations that she and her family are racist after photos emerged of her and her bullied son posing with Confederate flags.

‘I feel like anybody who wants to take the time to ask anybody who I am or even troll through some other pictures, I mean I feel like we’re not racist,’ said Kimberly Jones on Tuesday.

‘I mean, people that know us, know us.’

The mother-of-three then defended the Confederate flag pictures she and her daughter posted to their social media accounts by stating: ‘It was meant to be ironic and funny and extreme. I am genuinely truly sorry. If I could take it back, I would.’

Kimberly was joined by Keaton for the pre-taped segment, which aired on Good Morning America just 24 hours after many began to question her motives upon seeing these images.

Union County school officials meanwhile have confirmed that Keaton was in fact that victim of at least one recent bullying incident.

Kimberly also addressed those who believe she is simply looking to profit of her son’s misfortune, pointing to the multiple Go Fund Me accounts that have been launched in the past few days for Keaton.

She explained that only one of those pages has her blessing and the others are fake. That official Go Fund Me has since been frozen.

The mother also urged people to try and look beyond their misgivings about her and continue to voice their support for her young son.

‘They want to hate me, I mean, whatever, that’s fine, but still talk to your kids,’ said Kimberly of her detractors.

‘Talk to your kids because this is – this is – this is an epidemic.’
