Maybe your parents weren't so bad

American teen Michael Bell Jr will be concentrating a lot harder in school now.
After returning home one evening with his report card, which containted three F’s, Michael’s parents decided a punishment was in order. 
Usually smartphones, laptops or internet privelages are taken away but that wasn’t the case here, oh no. Bell Jr was forced to stand on a street corner in Miami wearing a sandwich board. 
The board declared that he was the “class clown” and read, “Hey, I want to be a class clown. Is it wrong?” 
It continued on the back, “I’m in the 7th grade and got 3 F’s. Blow your horn if there’s something wrong with that.”
As if that wasn’t punishment enough, a video has also been uploaded to YouTube. 
Downtime is considering contacting the Bell residence, see if Michael is avliable to offer us some free on-street advertising.
