Skinny jeans complaint surfaces

Students at Nampa’s West Middle School were urged to wear purple to class today, to show support for a student who was reportedly bullied after he wore skinny jeans to school. Nampa school officials say they haven’t received a formal complaint, but reports of the incident have made the rounds on social media. A teacher reportedly teased the student for wearing skinny jeans, prompting classmates to harass the student as well. A Facebook page was launched after last week’s incident, calling for West Middle School officials to apologize to the student. As of Monday morning, the site had close to 1,400 likes/Kevin Richert, Idaho Education News. More here.

Question: I'm not sure what skinny jeans are. Are you?
