Colo. boy, 6, suspended for reciting 'Sexy' lyric

He's suspended and he knows it

A 6-year-old boy was suspended from his school in Aurora, Colo., for three days after school officials said he told a girl "I'm sexy and I know it," a line from a popular song by LMFAO. D'Avonte Meadows, a first-grader at Sable Elementary in suburban Denver, is accused of sexual harassment and disrupting other students, according to a letter the school district sent to his mother after he was sent home Wednesday. The mother, Stephanie Meadows, said her son doesn't know the meaning of sexual harassment. It's the second time he has gotten in trouble for quoting the song, she said.
