Mom defends son suspended for reciting racy lyric

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — The mother of a 6-year-old boy who was suspended from his suburban Denver school for three days after school officials said he recited a racy line from a popular song says her son is not a sexual harasser and “is not a pervert in any way.”

Stephanie Meadows says she hopes to clear her son’s name at a meeting with school officials Monday morning.

D’Avonte Meadows, a first-grader at Sable Elementary School in Aurora, is accused of sexual harassment and disrupting other students for allegedly telling a girl “I’m sexy and I know it,” a line from a song by the popular duo LMFAO. He was suspended Wednesday.

The boy’s mother says the allegations went too far, and her son was singing in the lunch line, not to the girl.
