Some defend official who said girls 'ruin everything'
SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. (AP) — Some people are defending a Tennessee high school official who posted a video explaining his ban on athletic shorts, saying "blame the girls, because they pretty much ruin everything."
The athletic director and assistant principal of Soddy-Daisy High School, Jared Hensley, posted the video Wednesday, telling students that wearing the shorts will earn them detention, even if they're below the knee. Then he said girls have ruined things since Adam and Eve.
Hamilton County Superintendent Bryan Johnson says Hensley is now on administrative leave.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that amid the backlash, the hashtag #TeamHensley is spreading, with some calling the comment a joke taken out of context.
