Oh, come on! A 7th grader in Rosenberg, Texas — TEXAS?! — was reportedly banned from wearing a T-shirt for the next Star Wars movie because it has a picture of a Stormtrooper holding a gun on it:

So now movie T-shirts depicting guns that exist only in a galaxy far, far away are banned? According to the school district, yes, because the dress codes bans “symbols oriented toward violence.”

According to the kid’s father, it’s “political correctness run amok.” From ABC 13:

Joe Southern says his son, Colton, wore a shirt depicting the “Star Wars – The Force Awakens” logo, along with a Storm Trooper holding a weapon, to class Thursday at George Junior High School. He’s apparently worn it to school several times before without any issue.

On Thursday, though, school officials told Colton the shirt was banned because it has a gun, or at least a picture of what in the movie is weapon.

“It’s political correctness run amok. You’re talking about a Star Wars t-shirt, a week before the biggest movie of the year comes out. It has nothing to do with guns or making a stand. It’s just a Star Wars shirt,” Southern said.

May the stupid be with you.
