Shelly McCullar is apologizing on behalf of her young son Anthony after a parody of the McDonald's logo led to a brief spate of viral fame. What at first glance was no more than the golden arches above the familiar slogan "I'm loving it" was in actuality a pair of parted female legs, replete with stripper high heels. It wasn't until Anthony got home that she says she noticed exactly what the shirt actually represented.

“I promise from now on to monitor what my kids are wearing!” McCullar has posted to Facebook, “I had no idea Anthony wore this to school.”
The Facebook post in question has now been shared over 100,000 times. In it she explains that this shirt was just one among many in a box of hand-me-down clothes Anthony had received that she hadn't yet gone through. A crestfallen and slightly embarrassed looking Anthony explains on the now-viral video that he picked out the short because it looked "like McDonald's." His mother can be heard asking what happened when he got to school, if anyone said anything. As for any response from teachers or administrators, "they thought it was like McDonald's too."
“Just to clarify, I would never let my kid wear something like this. A friend had given me some hand-me-down clothes for Anthony. I haven’t had the chance to completely go through them. I will tonight though!” she shared in the Facebook post.
McCullar also extended “sincere apologies to the teachers and staff” at the school, and expressed her “embarrassment” about the whole affair.

This is by far not the only case of kids wearing inappropriate shirts without themselves or even adults catching wind of it either, evidently.
