Washington, Mar 24 (ANI): American model Christie Brinkley has revealed that she turned a viewing of revived Broadway musical West Side Story into a life lesson for her teenage son.

Brinkley, 55, wanted her son to understand the violence of gangs and the danger involved with them, when she saw 13-year-old Jack and his sister reading an ad recruiting people to a gang.

Not too long ago, my son and daughter were on an online game, and a pop-up ad came up and they were trying to recruit the kids to a gang. And I thought Oh my gosh! Contactmusic quoted her as telling the New York Daily News.

I thought he (son) could learn a thing or two from the show. Kids back then joined gangs, and (it) is relevant as these gangs are re-emerging, she added. (ANI)
