6-Year-Old Suspended for Quoting LMFAO Song … School calls it sexual harassment

It’s a line that has likely helped earn LMFAO piles of cash … but all it got a 6-year-old Colorado boy is a three-day suspension for sexual harassment. First-grader D’Avonte Meadows apparently voiced the line “I’m sexy and I know it” to a female student while in the lunch line. And he didn’t even sing it—”I only just said the song,” he tells 7News. His mom is none too pleased, and explains that she sees things like “fondling … looking up her skirt” as sexual harassment, not quoting an MTV favorite. “They’re going to look at him like he’s a pervert. And it’s like, that’s not fair to him.”

Sable Elementary School issued a statement saying it couldn’t discuss the case; the district’s code on sexual harassment refers to acts that have “negative” effects on the “learning or work of others.” His mom says D’Avonte got in trouble for saying the same line to the same girl last month (that time, booty shaking was apparently involved) and the assistant principal spoke to him. But the AP notes that she questions whether her son knows anything about sexual harassment. “I’m going to definitely have to sit with him and see if he understands exactly what the song means.”
