High School Student Suspended For Tweeting About Teacher's Horrible Parking Job

Curtis High School in Staten Island is now learning a good lesson about teenagers on Twitter.

Posted on

Erik Nielsen has started a pretty lively twitter trend after he was suspended for tweeting about a teacher's bad parking job.

Perhaps a good lesson about dealing with teenagers on the internet, since Nielsen's suspension the #TweetForErik and #FreeErik hashtags have began blowing up.

There's even merch.

According to The Daily Dot, Curtis High School couldn't confirm how long Nielsen's suspension was for, but that he had a meeting with the principal Tuesday.

In the meantime though, as you can see, Nielsen's classmates are dead set on turning this into a whole thing.
