South Carolina school tells student not to wear controversial sweatshirt, then changes decision

CHARLESTON, S.C. – A teenage boy in South Carolina was told by school officials that he couldn’t wear a shirt that read, “SOME people are GAY, get over it.”

WCSC reported that it happened earlier this week at West Ashley High School in Charleston.

Although the boy was originally told not to wear it, the school has since changed their decision.

The principal said on Friday that the school’s staff made a “hasty, incorrect decision” when telling him not to wear it. The teenager is now free to wear the shirt.

The mother of the teenager complained on Facebook after hearing about the incident. The family of the student involved was not available for comment.
