London, Feb 13 (ANI): A group of Justin Bieber fans were sent home from a New York City school after their tribute T-shirts to the teen idol were branded ‘gang related.’

The four teenagers had worn them to school before heading to the theatre to see Bieber’s new film, ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.’

When the girls showed up at school in their black T-shirts painted with ‘Bieber Crew’ security guards on duty and school officials judged the shirts to be ‘gang related’.

They were given the option of either taking the shirts off or turning them inside out.

According to TMZ.com, the students of Roosevelt High School in Yonkers, said that they ‘were threatened with suspension,’ reports the Daily Mail.

The homemade T-shirts were not viewed as a Bieber fanwear by the school and the principal called a meeting with the girls, their parents and the security guards.

One of the girl’s parents said the principal informed the group that: “The T-shirts were inappropriate for school because they were gang related.”

The principal went on to say that if any of the girls were seen wearing their Bieber tees at school again the offence would result in suspension.

The parent’s seem to be none too happy with the school’s “over the top reaction” to their daughter’s choice in clothing with one parent saying, “It’s ridiculous. They are good kids who love Justin Bieber.” (ANI)
