Keaton Jones, the boy in a video who opened up about his bullying, revealed that he hasn’t gone back to school since the clip went viral.

The 11-year-old boy said that he’s not sure when he’ll return to Horace Maynard Middle School in Maynardville, Tennessee, according to People magazine.

“I actually haven’t been to school,” he said. And he asked of his bullies, “Why do you bully? What’s the point of it? It makes me feel awful.”

His mother, Kimberly, said the child didn’t want to go back to the school even when “the whole world wanted to come and eat lunch with him.”

“I’ve struggled anyway, especially being this close to Christmas break, but after seeing how big it got, I mean it just seems like maybe we should let it die down a little bit before we made any decisions so that we could kind of have a reality of what life is gonna be like,” she added.

The video prompted athletes, MMA fighters, and other celebrities to rally around the boy.

Keaton also got to visit University of Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer, according to SEC Country. He also got to tour around the campus.
