Detroit Boy In Trouble For Bringing Cupcakes To School With Army Men On Top

A nine-year-old Detroit boy is in some hot water after he brought cupcakes into school for his ninth birthday and decorated them… with little green army men. The school principal called the parents to tell them the decorations on his birthday treat were insensitive.

She had the staff take the army guys off before handing out the cupcakes to the class. After the story blew up over the weekend the principal issued a statement saying she meant no disrespect towards either the family or the military.

She said it’s just about creating a “safe place” for the children to “learn, grow, and have respectful dialogues about their differences.” What is your opinion on this whole situation? Do you find this… wrong?
