CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The principal at West Ashley High School confirmed Friday staff made a "hasty, incorrect decision" in telling a student he was not allowed to wear a sweatshirt with the word "gay" on it at school earlier this week.
A mother turned to Facebook Thursday to vent her outrage with the administration at West Ashley High School after an alleged incident involving her son.
According to her Facebook post, staff at the high school did not approve of a sweatshirt her son was wearing, which read "Some people are GAY, get over it."
Live 5 News reached out to Charleston County School District regarding the mother's claims. A district official released the following statement Friday:
William Runyon is the principal at West Ashley High School.
The family of the student involved in the incident has not yet responded to Live 5 News' request for comment.
