DINWIDDIE, Va., Sept. 22 (UPI) -- A Virginia school said it forced a student to change his "Duck Dynasty" T-shirt because the message was threatening to other students.

The shirt featured the quote "I will hurt you physically and metaphysically," from Si Robertson. a character from the A&E Network reality TV show, WWBT-TV, Richmond, Va. reported.

The Dinwiddie High School student, Hunter Spain, was given a choice to turn his shirt inside out or go home and change.

"If you are a 'Duck Dynasty' fan you understand the meaning of the shirt," Superintendent David Clark said. "But if you haven't watched 'Duck Dynasty' you may question if the shirt implies violence. As a school division, we would like to keep our slogans on student shirts as non-violent as possible."

The teen's mother, Edna-Jo Spain, said she was outraged by the school's action.

"For this to be considered as a threat to the school, I couldn't understand it," she said.
