New York, Oct 16 (ANI): A bracelet that reads "I [heart] boobies" has been banned from schools in the US, it has emerged.

The administrators have told students who want to raise awareness of breast cancer to wear this controversial 4-dollar band inside out because the 'boobies' language is not appropriate.

According to sources, already 2 million of the rubber bracelets, being sold by the Keep A Breast Foundation, a nonprofit group based in California, have been sold. The money raised from bracelet sales is meant to go toward breast cancer research and education programs.

Kollin West, 14, a student in Laramie, Wyo., started wearing the bracelet when he saw women receiving breast cancer treatment at the same hospital where his father was getting chemotherapy for his testicular cancer.

"I just thought it would be a good idea to support breast cancer," the New York Daily News quoted West as saying.

But school officials warned him to wear the bracelet inside out. (ANI)
