The latest tweet from a Muslim boy who brought a clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb has some people wondering whether he and his family planned this all along.
By now, the story of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed — who brought to school a homemade clock in a briefcase that looked startlingly like a briefcase bomb, and who was subsequently arrested — has gone far and wide, garnering responses from various celebrities, including President Barack Obama, who invited Mohamed to the White House.
There is even a prayer vigil being held for the unharmed child, who appears in his latest tweet to be relishing his time in the spotlight.
That latest tweet stirred a hornet’s nest of controversy, as it shows Mohamed and his family all smiles with the caption, “Going to meet my lawyer.”
Several people on social media said the entire incident was planned by Mohamed and his family, and called it a scam.

@NolteNC Put Ahmed on the no-fly list. This whole thing was a set up to gain victim status/attention and probably to sue as well. — Lee Marvin 2016 (@LeeMarvin2016) September 18, 2015
@SonofLiberty357 Come to find out Ahmed’s daddy is-a known Muslim activist and provocateur. So, they’ll sue to pay for the lad to go to MIT.
