In an interview with Illinois’ ABC affiliate, the parent of Brandon Porter claims his son was singing Future’s 2017 song “Draco” as he left school when he mistakenly replaced “Draco” with “AK” in the line “Draco season with the bookbag.” Apparently, a female student heard the lyric and felt threatened, so she reported him to school officials. Porter explained,

“He was leaving class headed to the bus…they came out of one hallway, into another hallway, they all met, leaving going towards the bus…he was singing the song and she felt threatened by the song apparently, but she kept walking towards the bus or whatnot.”

Now, following an investigation by police, their findings were given to school officials who, then decided to give Porter’s son three out-of-school suspensions and three in-school suspensions. In addition to that, he was also banned from partaking in any extracurricular activities for the remainder of the school year. Despite that, Porter maintains that his son didn’t mean any harm.

“He didn’t come out and just say, ‘Hey I’m going to do this to this person or do this here at this place.’ You know what I mean?,” Porter told the Central Illinois Proud. “He was singing lyrics.”
