Arrested 14 year-old invited to the White House and facebook headquarters

2015 Sep 17

A 14-year-old student was arrested after he brought a homemade clock to school that teachers thought looked too much like a bomb.

Ahmed Mohamed likes to make electronics as a hobby, and he said that when he was showing his new project to teachers he made it clear that it was a clock.

However, the kid was arrested and taken in as reported after later he was released without compensation.

The scenario created major controversy in the country with people starting to stand against this “in-human un-lawful act” as described by most people on social media.

The hashtag #IStandWithAhmed has gone viral since the teen’s release from custody, and President Obama even tweeted an invite to bring the clock to the White House:

Zuckerberg also invited Mohamed to come by Facebook’s headquarters:

Mohamed was wearing a NASA T-shirt when he was arrested, prompting many astronauts to reach out to the teen and encourage him to continue pursuing science:

Mohamed thanked his supporters with a snapchat screenshot through his newly setup twitter account which his sister decided to make for him following his overnight popularity.

Mohameds family may have a few places to visit if he does opt in to take the invitations to the DC and California.
