The genial superstar Rihanna was one of the many celebrities who stepped up to support a young man named Keaton when his mother uploaded a video of him detailing the abuse he suffered at the hands of his bullies.
Keen to support the child, these celebrities led the charge to raise money to support he and his family via GoFundMe pages with hopes the cash would go some way to lift his spirits.
Alas, things took a turn for the left (or far right) when it emerged that Keaton’s family may be confederate-flag waving, Black Lives Matter hating, viciously wild racists!
How Rihanna responded?

Perhaps hurt that she was fooled into putting money into the pockets of camp Keaton, Rihanna pulled the viral video from her Instagram page and replaced it with this one…
Just heartbreaking!!!!! We’re losing our babies to bullying!!! Teach your kids love and equality. Teach them about the beauty in uniqueness and how to embrace others’ differences! I can’t imagine what the families of these 2 young girls are feeling right now! But my heart breaks for you!! #BulliesKill
She wasn’t the only one.

That Keaton story is mad unfortunate especially now that its been confirmed that he was “bullied” for repeating racist bullshit. His momma aint shit, using her child to scam, I hope GoFundMe returns every dime.

Here’s hoping GoFundMe refunds anyone who donated to Keaton’s “cause”.
