Kids, don't try this at home... or school

The parents of a 14-year-old high school teen are outraged at a New York school for expelling their daughter who they say was pressured into vaping by a fellow student who just happens to be famous.

Nadia Leonelli and Fredrik Sundwall say their daughter, who shall be identified as M.S., was pressured into vaping in the school’s bathroom. They say their daughter felt the pressure from Fatima Ptacek because she is older and famous. Fatima Ptacek, the child actress who also does the voiceover for the Dora the Explorer series, is being accused by M.S.’s parents for pressuring their daughter, who’s younger than her.

Their daughter got expelled, but “Dora” got a free pass…

Although the pen didn't contain any drugs or tobacco, but only caramel-flavored water, M.S. still got in trouble and was expelled from the school while Ptacek only got a 3-day suspension.
