Keaton’s mother soon deleted her Facebook profile where the photos showing she and her husband holding up the confederate flag. Under a post that was made shortly after the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Kimberly Jones wrote the following photo caption:
“Dear butt hurt Americans. If you aren’t bleeding, no bones are sticking out & you breathe, STOP crying! For the love, some folks clearly never picked a switch. And before y’all start talking to me about metaphorical, emotional, financial or historical blood & brokenness, Don’t. Join a group. #yallneedssomeporchtherapy #coffeewithJesus #somethin #FINE.”
