Free Speech and the Pennsylvania Cheerleader
NOTE: This episode contains some profanity. Listener discretion is advised.
In May 2017, a high school cheerleader took to Snapchat to vent about her cheerleading squad. Her profanity-laced message soon made its way around the school, resulting in a suspension from the team.
What followed is a civil court case that made its way all the way up to The US Supreme Court.
