A shirt, created to raise awareness for breast cancer, is causing controversy at an high school in Oklahoma City.

The principal says the shirt is offensive, but the designer of the t-shirt disagrees.

Jeremy Alexander, a junior at Southmoore High School, says he wore a Twin Peaks breast cancer awareness shirt to class and got suspended.

Jeremy says the principal claimed it was offensive to women.

"I was at least wearing it for a good cause, which is all that should matter," he said.

In a statement, the principal of Southmoore claims no students were suspended, but were simply asked to go home and change into appropriate attire.
