A student of Washington Community High School in Illinois has found himself suspended from school after singing Draco by Future. An interview with the father of the student Brandon Porter reveals that he was singing the lyric “Draco in my handbag,” but replaced Draco with “AK” by mistake. The father also stated that the incident occurred on Tuesday while the boy was leaving school.
Another student apparently heard him singing but she kept on walking to her bus. “He was leaving class headed to the bus they came out of one hallway, into another hallway, they all met, leaving going towards the but he was singing the song and she felt threatened by the song apparently, but she kept walking towards the bus or whatnot.”
The boy and his mother were called back to the school, where cops were waiting for them because the female student reported him for harassment.
Mr. Portal also revealed that his son was given a six-day suspension and banned from after school functions for the rest of the year, emphasizing that his son did nothing wrong and that there was no proof to support that his son threatened the female student.
“At this point, it’s her word over his, since when is her word more credible than his, he didn’t threaten her. What witness does she have? It’s not fair. It’s not fair to us. It’s not fair to him.”
The policy says anything that classifies as harassment is subject to “appropriate” action.
