ROCK HILL, S.C. — A South Carolina mom dressed her son up like a woman to punish him for fighting and making homophobic remarks at school, according to WCNC.

The mother shaved her young son’s head, dressed him in women’s clothing and then paraded him through Walmart on Sunday.

He was forced to wear a tutu, women’s boots and a teddy bear t-shirt.

A police report noted that the boy’s head was shaved on top and he had a patch of hair in the front. The word “bad” was written on the top back portion of his head.

The mother told police that her son was having behavioural issues and normal punishment wasn’t working so she tried to embarrass him.

So far, no charges have been filed, but the Department of Social Services is investigating the incident.
