A schoolboy has been reprimanded for alleged racism after he called a white pupil named Brown a ‘chocolate brownie’.
Harrison Wiener, 10, made the comment after being teased about his own surname at Thorp Primary School in Royton, Oldham.
Harrison’s mother is now furious after her son was disciplined by teachers and ordered to apologise.
Harrison had been called ‘sausage boy’ by a classmate making fun of his Austrian-derived surname, which is also an American word used for hot dog sausages.
The ten-year-old retorted: ‘Shut up, chocolate brownie’ only to be punished for making an apparent racist remark.
