Macklemore

Plenty have championed Macklemore's outspoken stance on gay rights — but not everyone. In September of last year, a teacher in North Carolina was suspended after showing the video for "Same Love" to students. The superintendent explained the punishment to a local paper: “At West Alexander Middle School, there was an inappropriate video shown in class, outside the bounds of the curriculum that called for disciplinary action last week.”
