ANGIER, N.C. (WTVD) — Mike Collins is disappointed about how he says his 18-year-old son was treated during a high school football game after wearing a jersey printed with President Donald Trump’s name.
“I think any mother or father would feel like I feel,” stated Collins.
The theme during Harnett Central High School’s football game Friday was to dress patriotically for USA America night.
Collins says his son chose to wear the jersey, which was given to him as a gift by a family friend.
But it appears the high school senior’s fashion statement seemed too political for some people in the crowd.
Collins says his son was asked by the school principal to remove the jersey.
Matthew Collins, a student from Harnett Central High School in NC was kicked out of a school football game for wearing this shirt.
He was participating in “USA America Night” when the principle kicked him out because the shirt ‘offended’ someone.
