Middle School Kid Suspended For Liking Airsoft Gun Picture On Instagram

Oh gawd.

According to Fox 19 in Trenton Ohio, a student was handed a 10-day suspension for “liking” a picture of a gun on Instagram with the caption “ready.”

“I was livid, I mean, I’m sitting here thinking ‘you just suspended him for ten days for liking a picture of a gun on a social media site,” father Marty Bowlin said. “He never shared, he never commented, he never made a threatening post… anything on the site, just liked it.”

The picture in question is of an airsoft gun, and according to the students’ parents, their child didn’t comment on the post but simply liked the picture.

Only 2 likes? That could be the bigger crime here.

Since receiving the notice, the family said the school has dropped the suspension and there will be no repercussions for the child’s actions.
