Mom defends son suspended for reciting racy lyric

AURORA, Colo. (AP) – A 6-year-old boy is back at his suburban Denver school after being suspended for three days for reciting a racy line from a popular song.

D’Avonte Meadows, a first-grader at Sable Elementary School in Aurora, returned to class Monday after serving out his suspension.

D’Avonte was 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, Stephanie Meadows, says she met with school officials Monday and they agreed to consider changing their findings from “sexual harassment” to “harassment” because of his age. It wasn’t immediately clear what the change would mean for D’Avonte, and school officials declined to comment.

Stephanie Meadows says the allegations went too far, and her son was singing in the lunch line, not to the girl.
