A junior at Wall Township High School, Grant Berardo, wore a navy blue T-shirt with a specific message on it for his school picture day. He was very proud of the t-shirt he chose and was extremely excited to see it when the yearbooks were handed out at the end of the year.

However, when Berardo received his yearbook, he noticed that the message on his T-shirt had been ‘removed’. USA Today reported that the teen student said the shirt was obviously photoshopped.

Below shows Berardo’s (second student on the bottom row) school photo after it was photoshopped. The message that was displayed on the t-shirt has clearly been photoshopped out of the picture. Instead, it appears as a plain, navy blue t-shirt.

Berardo had his family’s support in wearing the t-shirt, so he immediately contacted his mom and dad to tell them what was going on. He reportedly told them, “You won’t believe this”.

After realizing what happened, Berardo and his family were very upset because Berardo’s shirt was not inappropriate and did not violate any school policy, reports USA. The shirt contained no harsh language and did not reference drugs, alcohol, violence, etc.

So, why was the shirt photoshopped? Why was the message on his t-shirt an issue?....STORY CONTINUES ON NEXT PAGE.
