AURORA, Colo., May 6 (UPI) -- A Colorado grade school student was suspended for singing the signature line from LMFAO's song "Sexy and I Know It," school officials said.
D'Avonte Meadows, a first-grader at an Aurora elementary school, was suspended for three days for alleged sexual harassment, KMGH-TV, Denver, reported.
"I only just said the song," D'Avonte said. "I'm sexy and I know it."
D'Avonte said recited the lyric while he and a girl were standing in lunch line for lunch.
"I could understand if he was fondling her, looking up her skirt, trying to look in her shirt. That, to me, is sexual harassment," said Stephanie Meadows, D'Avonte's mother. "I'm just, I'm floored. They're going to look at him like he's a pervert. And it's like, that's not fair to him."
It was a repeat performance for the boy. Meadows said her son had quoted the same line from the same song to the same girl last month, and that time was seen "shaking his booty" near the girl's face.
"I'm going to definitely have to sit with him and see if he understands exactly what the song means," Meadows said. "I think it's kind of overwhelming. You know, sexual harassment on a 6-year-old? I don't understand. You know, kids are kids."
