Students Planned To Bully Mentally Challenged Girl During Homecoming Parade
PACIFIC, MO (KTVI)– Country music singer Rickie Lee Tanner is outraged after learning students at Pacific High School allegedly planned to humiliate his mentally challenged daughter during this Saturday’s homecoming parade.
Tanner and his wife say the daughter came home from school excited, telling them she had been elected to the homecoming court. They say they became suspicious because the teen doesn’t have friends. While 15 years old, they say she has the mentality of a 10 year old.
The Tanners contacted the principal, who was slow to respond, so they conducted their own investigation.
They learned students were allegedly planning to pelt his daughter with eggs and quack like a duck when her float went by in the parade. Because she wrote in her bio that her pet duck was her friend.
The Tanners say they would like to see the homecoming dance cancelled in light of the allegations.
