One Missouri student found trouble on the bus when he made a political fashion statement on his way to school.
The mother of a 6th grade student is outraged after her son was suspended for being beat up on the school bus for wearing a ‘Make American Great Again’ hat, according to The Daily Mail.
The trucker hat, which was a campaign staple for Donald Trump, has become a symbol of his policies and beliefs.
Gavin, 12, was filmed being verbally and physically assaulted by students during the bus ride. Despite being the ‘victim’ in the encounter, he was taken out of school.
Video footage shows her son being surrounded by students as one yells, ‘you want to build a wall? You want to build a f****** wall?’
His mother, Christina Cortina said to News 4: ‘As a parent it’s so upsetting. I feel like my son was made an example of, it was a tricky situation, it was politically charged.’
The spokesperson for the school district released a statement saying the fight was ‘investigated and that all students involved have faced ‘consequences.’
