CALIFORNIA – A local school in San Francisco has banned their gym class after parents claimed it discriminated against fat kids.
The outrage came after an overweight kid was humiliated in several physical sports during gym class. Apparently the kid came in last in sprints, dodge-ball, basketball, and every other physical activity he participated in.
Everything changed when the student went home and told his parents what happened. The outraged parents decided to tweet the entire story on Twitter, which caused the story to go viral.
During the global outrage, civil rights group protested and threatened the school with lawsuits. They claimed gym class discriminated against fat kids. That’s when the school decided to drop their gym program entirely.
There’s no telling if the school will reinstate their gym class, but reports are showing that other schools will be eliminating their gym classes as well.
