Michigan teacher suspended for playing Macklemore UPDATED

2019383923.jpegCheck out the story right here via Detroit's FOX affiliate, about how a middle school teacher in South Lyon, Mich., was suspended after playing "Same Love" for her class. The Macklemore song promotes gay marriage.

Remember when a teacher in Spokane, Wash., used Blue Scholars' lyrics in class and got in trouble? That's the last time I remember a local rap group being in the news this way.

Check out my Macklemore feature and video here.

UPDATE: Macklemore has weighed in on the situation here.
