Houston Area Honors Student Is A Guest On Ellen After Dress Code Issues

A Houston area honors student went viral because of his school district's issues with his hair.

DeAndre Arnold was told by Barbers Hill ISD that he can't walk at his graduation this year unless he cuts his hair. He's been growing it out for years, and now that he's on the brink of being done, they suddenly have a problem with it.

On her show, Ellen begged Barbers Hill to let him walk, and Alicia Keys presented DeAndre with a $20k check to help with college! (He wants to be a veterinarian.)

I'm 100% on Team DeAndre. There's no legitimate reason to discriminate against him because of his hair. Do better, Barbers Hill!
