A 13-year-old boy has become an internet sensation for his recent video message to President Obama.
Ahmed Mohamed, a ninth grader at MacArthur High School in Irving, was handcuffed and questioned by police after he took the clock to his school. No charges were filed.
Many came to the boy's defense, criticizing the school and police for what they saw as an Islamo-phobic response.
President Obama brought more attention to the case by tweeting his support and inviting Ahmed to the White House.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015
In a video called "Dear Mr. President and Ahmed," which has been watched more than 1.6 million times, Pearson called out the President for not even calling the family of Kate Steinle.
Steinle was murdered in San Francisco, allegedly by an illegal immigrant.
"To go even further, Mr. President, when cops are being gunned down, you don't invite their families to the White House. But when a Muslim kid builds a clock? Come on by. What is this world that you're living in?" Pearson asked.
