WXMI reported Union City High School’s class of 2015 t-shirts read “The girls are hot. The boys are fine. We’re the class of 6 + 9.”

“Our class is like the joking class, so we wanted it to be funny and represent us,” student Mickaylah Brigg said.

However, school administrators don’t think it’s funny.

Administrators told students the shirts had “potential sexual innuendo,” according to WXMI.

Brigg said a classmate wore the shirt anyway and was suspended.

She said after the student was suspended Friday, the class decided to all wear the shirts Monday.

That didn’t go over well.

Brigg said administrators waited for the students to walk inside the school and then suspended everyone wearing the shirts deemed inappropriate.

WXMI reported the students were suspended June 10, the last day of school.

The school superintendent told WXMI the students were warned about the clothing and chose to wear it anyway.
