Celebrities Tweet Support For Muslim Teen Arrested for Bringing Clock to School

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was arrested earlier this week when he brought a homemade clock to school, which his teacher mistook for a bomb.

The 14-year-old high school student was arrested when his English teacher became suspicious. He was taken to a juvenile detention center in handcuffs and interrogated. Police just announced that he will not be charged with a crime.

Celebrities, including President Obama, have been tweeting their support all day.

    Wah, whatever. How about the little kid who was removed from school for biting his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun because he was trying to be cute? YES, that really happened. How about the White kid in a class full of Hispanics who was made to go home and change his shirt because it had the USA flag on it? YES, that really happened. I’m sick of Obama, Hollywood, and the Left cherry-picking their minority crusades.

    Islamophobia to its finest. ‘Merica

    LOL omg you’re so ridiculous. This kid got arrested because he was MUSLIM . Do you want to know how the two correlate? If he wasn’t muslim, his teacher wouldn’t assume he was building a bomb. Like who thinks that way?
    Also let’s give you some perspective since you think Caucasians don’t get enough attention when incidents happen to them. How is it when a Caucasian person shoots up a bunch of people it’s an isolated incident and they “have a mental illness” but minorities are “terrorists” and “thugs”? It’s called WHITE privilege. The same one that seemingly gives you the false right to tell minorities to “get over it” when they bring remembrance to atrocities that they’ve faced.

    PLEASE never open that ignorant mouth of yours in public because if i ever hear an ignorant comment like that, don’t hesitate to think I will shut it down.

    Yes, because muslims aren’t famous for doing just that.

  • SquidBillie

    Were they handcuffed in front of everybody and actually ARRESTED?

  • SquidBillie

    What a dumb, ignorant comment.

  • devvv

    Being removed from school and forced to change a shirt is slightly different than actually being handcuffed and arrested. You’re a part of the problem.

    Doesn’t mean it was the wrong action to take! ISIS is filtering through our unsecured government and it is plausible that children are brainwashed into doing these things because…well (hate to break it to you) they are in other countries. Grow up, politically correct America… and Obama, you ignorant fool. Not one ounce of action to stop Isis. Disgusting.

    What a knee jerk reaction to the comment. What happened to this child was wrong and horrible and the teachers need to be better educated and the police need to be dealt with for overreacting. That being said, the vast majority of terrorism being carried out today is being done in the name of Islam. This is not to say that all or even a large number of muslims are terrorist, and christianity has had it’s fair share of atrocities carried out in it’s name. But when a small faction dose terrible things in the name of your group/organization the vast majority need to speak out very loudly to denounce it, if you don’t then you are aiding in this kind of discrimination. The same way that when good cops don’t speak out against bad cops they do hold some of the responsibility for the way police are perceived.

    A lot of people are sick of selfish people like you who whine about it all the time.

  • Nova

    Like to repeat yourself. You sound very ignorant.

    I just want to say to the person who said most of the terrorism in the world today is in the name of Islam. Coming from a major Islamic country I can tell you we have absolutely minimal resources. We have no electricity for eighteen hours in a day, there is no gas to run cars and you seriously believe that we have the resources and finance to create bombs and other weaponry. I’m not pointing fingers but neither of us work for the government, neither of us are aware of what goes on in politics no matter how much you try to argue that you stay up to date or you’re sensible or some relative of yours keeps you in the loop. And most people wouldn’t have even considered terrorism in Islam If it wasn’t for the 9/11 incident and if you seriously believe that it happened without the knowledge of the government then you’re very naive and if you seriously believe that a Muslim even moves in America without the consent of the government then again you’re very naive. Having dealt with both countries and their respective governments for many a year I can assure you a lot goes on that we cannot conceive and a lot that you wouldn’t want to believe about your precioua America and the way it runs things. i am also against the violence and I’m not saying that it is okay, anyone who participates in any way to harm other lives is guilty but I’m just saying next time you believe that terrorism is solely the responsibility of Muslims and Islam, you might want to reconsider who is behind it all and how the hell they get access to the country when immigration is strict af.

    Ignorance is believing someone is ignorant based off of one comment. I refuse to stoop so little.

  • Nova

    Your whole comment about our unsecured government, ISIS and brainwashing is foolish and exaggerated.

    Tell that to the thousands of people getting their heads cut off or the thousands of Yazidi girls trafficked into slavery. It’s foolish and quite honestly mind startling how the American mentality believe they are invincible. Lol, your money won’t help you out.

    And your lack of an oxford comma is quite laughable too.

    Maybe Muslims should stop terrorizing people and then they won’t have such a bad rep.
