A Portland fifth grader says he won't perform in his school's talent show after the principal said he couldn't wear his costume of President Obama, the Oregonian reported Monday.Seriously. This is performance art. There has got to be some stimulus dollars out there we can get him.
Dru Lechert-Kelly is a student at Llewellyn Elementary school.
According to the Oregonian, his parents said Dru hoped to dress-up like the president and dance to the song "I can do whatever I like" for his performance in the talent show.
But after several parents expressed concern, the principle banned the mask.
The principal has not yet said why the parents thought the mask was offensive.
