A California girls basketball player was reportedly kicked out off her high school because she shared one of Snoop Dogg’s tweet on her personal timeline.
Sierra High senior Racquel Alec reportedly suspended from the school’s girls basketball team for liking and sharing post of artists on her social media pages. But the post that pissed the officials off, is the one that finds Snoop Dogg holding a joint in his hand.
The Snoop Dogg tweet is particularly important because the high school district forbids “Engaging in inappropriate sexual and drug propaganda.” But the student’s lawyers argue that her posts do not qualify as a violation because they were not made from a school computer and only her friends could see them on her private social media accounts.
Alec’s case is actually more complicated than that, with her family alleging that her now former-coach Cathy Lauritzen, violated an agreement brokered between the coach and player that she could return in 2017 after being kicked off the 2016 team for a fight with a fellow student. When Lauritzen didn’t want Alec back on the team, she allegedly asked another student-athlete to gain access to Alec’s social media accounts, which is where she saw the retweets connected with Snoop Dogg and other celebrities.
The decision to ban Alec from the basketball team has sent the student into a nervous breakdown her mother revealed. “When all of this happened, it really traumatized her, what we want is for this to never happen to another student again.”
While Alec and her lawyer continue to fight against the school, Snoop Dogg has shown his support for the student. ” Have er lawyer hit my team this is nonsense.” Snoop quotes.
