High school student forced to remove ‘threatening’ t-shirt
DINWIDDIE, Va. — A Dinwiddie, Virginia mother says her son got in trouble for wearing his “Duck Dynasty” t-shirt to school.
The popular show featuring a group of bearded millionaires is a hit on the A&E network, but the mother says her teenager was told the shirt was threatening to other kids at Dinwiddie High School.
“For this to be considered as a threat to the school,” said Edna-Jo Spain. “I couldn’t understand it.”
Spain was outraged when teachers at Dinwiddie High School forced her son to remove the shirt, which shows a character from the reality television show Duck Dynasty clinching his fist.
“It says, ‘I will hurt you physically and metaphysically,’” said Spain. “Anybody that ever watches Duck Dynasty knows that Si Robertson is famous for his little funny slogans.”
