Will the real Kimberly Jones please stand up?

As we reported, over the weekend, a heartbreaking video featuring bullied Tennessee student Keaton Jones went viral, leading to an outpouring of love and support from several A-list celebrities.

Unfortunately, the touching clip has also led to backlash.

Immediately after the video became an Internet sensation, social media users dug up unauthorized Facebook photos that appeared to feature mom Kimberly and her family posing with the Confederate flag.

As you surely know, the flag is widely regarded as a symbol of an extremely painful time for people of color in American history. As The Washington Post once said in June of 2015:

"Even to say that it's about heritage not hate, is to recognize that for many people it is inextricably about hate. You can't filter out the racism and leave what's pure and historical in the flag, because that purity doesn't exist. Some things are so primitively stained or tarnished by history that that can never be set 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 rally in Charlottesville slamming "butt hurt Americans" who are "crying" over (what appears to be) racism.

As we've mentioned before, while these posts 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.

As for what's definitely not real…

At the very least, no children were physically harmed.

As we reported, on Tuesday, a man identified as Luvelle Kennon (pictured above) allegedly held 70-year-old first grade teacher Linda Montgomery hostage in a classroom at Castle View Elementary School in Riverside, CA.

According to People, the almost seven-hour ordeal ended when authorities entered the room using flash-bang grenades, and shot the suspect, whose daughter reportedly attends the school. Kennon was transported to the hospital, and later died, said a Riverside Police press release.

While the teacher is safe, authorities say she is "OK, but traumatized," KTLA 5 reports.

It is unclear specifically why the 27-year-old was shot, why he allegedly held the educator against her will, if the two had previous contact, and whether he was armed.

The school will remain closed for the rest of this week.
