Texas Plumber Suing After His Truck Ended Up in ISIS Propaganda

A seventh grader in Texas was forced to cover up his "Star Wars" T-shirt after school officials said it violated the dress code.

The shirt in question depicts a Storm Trooper holding a weapon, along with the logo of the popular franchise.

Administrators say this represents a symbol of violence.

Speaking to local media, they have stood behind their decision, saying they could have made the student change, or even suspended him.

Joe Southern, the boy’s father, calls it a violation of freedom of speech.

He says his son Colton was just excited for the new "Star Wars" movie to be released on Friday, and declared the incident “political correctness run amok.”

“You're talking about a Star Wars t-shirt, a week before the biggest movie of the year comes out,” Southern told ABC 13.

“It has nothing to do with guns or making a stand. It's just a 'Star Wars' shirt.”
