Outrage as student, 16, is suspended FOR saying ‘illegal alien’ in class – Elon Musk REACTS

41

Christian McGhee, 16, has been suspended for three days because he used the forbidden phrase ‘illegal alien’ in class.

The North Carolina high school student was in a classroom discussion about word meanings when he made the alleged blunder.

What Happened?

Christian who is left confused said, ‘I didn’t make a statement directed towards anyone — I asked a question.’

He had only questioned the term ‘alien’ in an assignment during classroom work, asking if it referred to ‘space aliens or illegal aliens without green cards.

But his comment somehow offended another student who physically threatened McGhee, leading to the involvement of school authorities, per the Carolina Journal.

The Student Defends Himself

‘I wasn’t speaking of Hispanics because everyone from other countries needs green cards, and the term ‘illegal alien’ is an actual term that I hear on the news and can find in the dictionary,’ McGhee added.

The Impact of His Suspension

His suspension could impact his chance of securing an athletic scholarship for college as he played on his school’s track and cross country teams. 

His Mother Cries For Help

His mother, Leah McGhee, said that despite their efforts, the assistant principal has been unwilling to remove the infraction from Christian’s record. 

‘Because of his question, our son was disciplined and given THREE days OUT of school suspension for ‘racism,’ wrote Christian’s mother in an email.

Republican State Senator Steve Jarvis, representing Davidson County, has reached out to the school district’s superintendent, urging officials to look for the best outcome.

However, Jarvis refrained from taking a stance on the issue, and explained that he needed to understand all perspectives involved.

People React to the News

The popular X account Libs of TikTok also weighed in by saying Christian’s record could be ‘damaged’ by the brouhaha over political correctness.

‘Please support this based student by helping to raise awareness to his story!’ the conservative account wrote in the post, which has received more than 4 million views.

X owner Elon Musk commented: ‘This is absurd.’

Conservative personality Ian Miles Chong called it ‘insane.’
